Welcome to Wychwood Tree Surgeons

Based in Brentwood, Wychwood Tree Surgeons is a family-run business that covers all aspects of tree work throughout Greater London and Essex.

We pride ourselves on our professionalism, reliability and dedication to delivering the best possible service. 

At Wychwood Tree Surgeons, we specialise in every area of tree care, from tree planting to the largest removals dealing with both domestic and commercial work. 

Whether you're an individual homeowner or a large commercial organisation, our focus is on delivering the highest possible standards at all times. Our team have also all been trained to carry out all work to BS3998, the British Standard for Tree Work, for all projects.

How we can help you?

We strive to give exceptional service, whatever your requirements. Our clients include residential homeowners, private estates, local authorities, schools and commercial businesses. With each task, we focus on tailoring our service to meeting your individual needs. 

We are also committed to working in the most environmentally friendly way possible. Safety is also extremely important. Tree surgery is a potentially hazardous job, and we are committed to completing each project with the minimum of risk. A detailed site assessment and risk assessment is carried out prior to the commencement of any work. 

Passionate about tree surgery since his teenage years, Dean Tucker founded Wychwood Tree Surgeons almost 10 years ago and hasn't looked back since.

Meet Dean, born arborist

For Dean Tucker, life as a British arborist truly is a dream job. At 37 years old, he has been climbing trees for a living since he was 18. After 5 years, he went freelance, doing what he calls “All the hard work that other companies didn’t like or couldn’t do”. Three years later, he set up Wychwood Tree Surgeons and hasn’t looked back since. Wychwood Tree Surgeons has now been running successfully for Ten years. Dean has a regular client base and comes highly recommended.

“I remember recently I was working with a colleague of mine, climbing trees and doing some big removals,” he says. “At one point I looked at my groundsman and said: 'Barry! I don't even feel like I'm working, this is so much fun' I can't believe I actually get paid to do this. It doesn't feel like work most of the time."

Working with friends and family is a huge part of why he’s so passionate about his job and company. "Having a good crew really helps. I get along with all my guys, we all have fun at work which I think is key in the tree world. You can have those long, horrible days but doing it with guys you like and who are good at what they do makes it worth it,” he says.

Whether it's clear cutting a huge construction site, removing a big dead tree growing over a house or pruning a small fruit tree, it’s clear that Dean is a man who lives and breathes tree work. “Tree work in general really carries over into my life. I like doing what’s right for the customer and making them happy. Sometimes friendships are even formed from helping people and understanding their needs."
