A Brief history

P R Newson Tree Surgery ( as it were known then ) was established in April 1987 not long before the great storm the following October. We became a Ltd company in 2003 and were Local Authority Approved Contractors for over 25 years. We were also the company that carried out all of the tree work directly for LOCOG for the London 2012 Olympic Games.

The company MD Phil Newson studied engineering before going on to become a tree surgeon. Of late he represented the industry specialists on the FISA working group writing the 608 guide for grapple saw and tree shear use.

We now no longer carry out conventional tree surgery and focus on forestry and mechanised arboriculture. This is essentially tree work from the ground using machinery. We pioneered some of these techniques over 10 years ago and now have become one of the most competent and advanced companies carrying out this type of work.
