The Sussex Tree Company have carried out a number of quite large scale tree surgery projects on the various St Johns sites.  St. John’s is a special educational needs school and specialist college, catering for young people with a wide range of learning disabilities and special needs. Nick and anyone he has had working with him have been sensitive to the needs of the students, and they have carried out their work diligently, efficiently and with a good attention to detail.

We have worked with, Nick Eddison of The Sussex Tree Company for many years. He has helped us manage our trees and hedges, including planting, shaping, height management and thinning. He can also turn his hand to tree protection, fencing,  and is very helpful in suggesting plants or tree types that might work well in the garden.

Nick is always prompt, works very neatly and tidies up afterwards. He is friendly and helpful and if he needs help himself, will bring a colleague to ensure a timely conclusion to any job. His quotes are always quick, detailed and very fair.

We would not hesitate to recommend, Nick to anyone looking for a reliable tree specialist or if help if needed in all types of garden projects.

The Sussex Tree Company have recently undertaken consultancy work at ST. Bernadette’s to meet the school’s long term tree management objectives.  The initial work was an extensive arboricultural survey of the wide range of trees in the school grounds, which was presented to the school as a comprehensive tree management plan, with an action plan of maintenance going forward.  This report has given the school the tools to plan and budget for its tree management effectively in the coming years.

Nick is an experienced arborist, with an extensive knowledge of the trees and the wider natural environment.  He communicates well and produces articulate, well-reasoned recommendations.

Nick has also carried out ongoing and urgent tree work at the school, to satisfy our health and safety requirements.  This work has been done to a high standard, working wit the school and its daily routines, and cost effectively.
