Men in Trees: Isle of Wight Tree Surgery
We are an Isle of Wight tree surgery company providing an affordable and professional service, operating across the whole Island.
Thank you for clicking onto the ‘Men in Trees’ website. This will probably be different and less anodyne than a typical tree surgery or business website. The reason for this is because I feel tree surgery needs to be seen in the wider context of how we interact with the environment.
We are a regular fully-qualified tree surgery business based on the Isle of Wight and are probably a little cheaper than comparable tree surgery businesses. We also offer a comprehensive garden design service, having won many garden awards.
I appreciate the name ‘Men in Trees’ is a little sexist but arboriculture (tree surgery – dealing with trees in the urban environment, or near humans, for want of a better definition) is still unfortunately a male-dominated industry. This should not be the case. Good climbing is all technique, and modern chainsaws are light and compact. Incidentally, if you are thinking of becoming a tree surgeon, male or female, do it soon. I could be wrong but the rise (pun intended) of the cherry-picker and crane brigade will increasingly make climbing and rigging less relevant and applicable, and that unique interplay with the tree will be lost – we climbers caress as we kill.
