Beddow Tree helps Hastings High school with green careers day

Beddow Tree are pleased that we were able to work with Hastings High School (Burbage, Leicestershire) helping them with their green careers day.

The event ‘what’s my job?’ was an activity session attended by Mike Beddow, starting with students trying to guess our industry/job. We prepared a short presentation and then students had the opportunity to ask up to 20 questions with the aim of guessing the role/industry.

We then used this an an opportunity to talk about our industry, making the session informative and at the same time raising awareness of being a tree surgeon. We also saw this an an opportunity to attract new people into the industry in later years.


Many thanks to Hastings High School for letting Beddow Tree be part of their Green Careers Day.


Letter of Thanks received from Hastings High School



Dear Mike,

On behalf of Hasting High School, I would like to express our sincere thanks to you for the time you have given us yesterday to deliver ‘What’s my job?’  to our year 9 students.  Your commitment, passion and enthusiasm for your careers has had a significant impact on our students.

Your contribution today forms part of our wider careers strategy, through which we are aiming to ensure that our students move on from Hastings High School as successful and confident young adults.  You have helped us boost our events around STEM, British Science Week and our environmental interest.

We know that the students found the event inspiring and we intend to get some feedback from the students – I will share any specific feedback or questions I receive about your career.  If you have any feedback you wish to share with us, it will help us to shape our future events.

“I would just like to say how impressed I was with the team who came to our property last week to remove trees. They were very pleasant young men , very polite  and very professional. They worked efficiently and cleaned up well afterwards . They checked that we were happy and cut up some of the bigger logs to smaller slices so that we could lift and store  them for firewood.

Thank you”

“Your work staff are excellent. They arrived on time.  Followed our instructions regarding parking.  Did not hang around and started work on our trees straight away.

They worked quickly, efficiently and with care.

I would definitely recommend your business, and would not hesitate to use your services in the future”.

Just wanted to say that Ben and his mate (don’t know his name!) did a great job today. Trees look neat and tidy again! Ben was very polite and courteous. A credit to Beddows”.

“I appointed Beddow Tree Specialists to help me with an initial garden tidy up which included the removal of certain trees, stumps and also pruning a neighbour’s tree. The quotation was clear and concise from the beginning. The work was undertaken and I was fully informed throughout the process. Some stumps were not able to be removed at the time but the team came back and removed them as agreed. The garden space is now much more acceptable and allows us to plan the next steps much easier now we can “see the wood from the trees”.
I would highly recommend Mike and his team who also left the property tidy”.
