About Us

History


Ford Transit Mk. 3Prior to forming Beddow Tree Care (former name) Michael Beddow undertook training at Brooksby College, Melton Mowbray, Myerscough College Lancashire and the University of Central Lancashire.  In addition Michael spent a year  to furthering his practical skills working in Washington DC, USA.  During his year in the states Michael worked on prestigious sites such as the Pentagon, Arlington Cemetery, Smithsonian Institute and was involved with the building of the Franklyn Roosevelt Memorial Garden amongst other famous landmarks.  When he had completed college and gained some more experience he set up Beddow Tree Care on the 1st of September 1999.

 

Initial equipment was a white transit van similar to the image, two stihl chainsaws and a set of climbing equipment.  Now as you can see from the group equipment photo things have changed a little!

 

Over the next 15 years the business grew significantly.  Throughout this time, Beddow Tree Specialists continued to invest in training and development of staff and even developed an inhouse Apprenticeship Scheme. Peaking at around 30 full time staff.

Beddow Tree Specialists then took a different route in the market. A smaller more efficient set up was targeted with its own base and yard in one place. We currently have 8 full time operatives and 1 committed to advisory role. Keeping the size smaller offers increased customer focus and a slightly less all consuming work load for the owner! As a result we are still able to undertake large jobs with upto 9 tree surgeons on a single site at once. But also the flatter structure within the business enables more contact between owner and employees to aid in refining and improving both staff and service.
