Woodvale Tree Care Ltd

Tree Surgery in Surbiton | Our Commitment to Health and Safety

At Woodvale Tree Care Ltd, the health, safety and welfare of our employees and customers is paramount. In addition to attending regular training to stay current with tree surgery techniques and technologies, our experienced tree surgeons have City & Guilds NPTC and Lantra certification, and are proud members of Checkatrade. That is why so many domestic and commercial customers throughout the Surbiton area trust us to handle their tree surgery needs.


Not only do we produce quality results, but we do so safely and responsibly, even when operating powerful equipment when performing tasks such as hedge cutting, stump grinding and tree removals.


As a responsible tree surgery company committed to safety, our tree surgeons adhere to the following regulations:


  • Health and Safety at Work Act 1974 – As an employer, it is the responsibility of Woodvale Tree Care Ltd to protect the health, safety and welfare at work of all our employees.
  • Personal Protective Equipment at Work Regulations 1992 – When undertaking any tree surgery jobs around Surbiton, we always provide our employees with the necessary safety gear. This includes helmets, ear defenders, boots, gloves and safety goggles.
  • Provision and Use of Work Equipment Regulations 1998 – We provide the necessary training for all our tree surgeons, to ensure the safe operation of powerful tools, such as chainsaws and woodchippers, when carrying out tasks like stump grinding, tree removals and hedge cutting.
  • Lifting Operations and Lifting Equipment Regulations 1998 – Certain tree surgery tasks around Surbiton require the use of mobile elevated work platforms, particularly when relying on rigging equipment and cables would be unsafe. Our fully trained tree surgeons have the skill and experience to operate such machinery, enabling them to perform hedge cutting, tree surgery and tree removal tasks at height.
  • Management of Health and Safety at Work Regulations 1999 – Before undertaking any tree surgery work in the Surbiton area, Woodvale Tree Care Ltd conducts site inspections and risk assessments to recognise and compensate for any potential hazards, such as low-hanging power cables.
  • Control of Substances Hazardous to Health Regulations 2002 – By complying with this particular regulation, our tree surgeons limit the effects of potentially harmful substances, such as diesel fumes, sawdust and woodchips, when undertaking tree removals, stump grinding, hedge cutting and general tree surgery tasks.
  • Work at Height Regulations 2005 – As we often require the use of ladders, climbing harnesses, rigging equipment and various other tools that enable us to work at height, our tree surgeons perform regular checks to ensure their safe usage.


Compliance with the above regulations requires the total commitment of every employee at Woodvale Tree Care Ltd, from trainees to managers. This cooperation enables us to reduce the risk to our tree surgery personnel, our customers around Surbiton and their property.


Likewise, each individual at our company also has a statutory duty to take reasonable care for their own health and safety, as well as for the safety of others who their acts or omissions may affect.


Whether undertaking tree removals, stump grinding or hedge cutting for domestic or commercial clients throughout Surbiton, our tree surgeons deliver quality results whilst complying with our company’s strict health and safety standards.
