About Us


Operating as tree surgeons in South London since 2002, the manager and principal tree surgeon, Hamish Lodge, is a fully trained and qualified tree surgeon. He makes it his priority to ensure every customer is happy and has trained his entire team to be fully comprehensive, efficient and professional in all areas of tree work. We pride ourselves on our knowledge and experience in the industry, and will always be available to offer advice and guidance.


Having sub-contracted for Southwark Council for 5 years, we have a great skill base, from dealing with large trees, conservation areas, tree preservation orders, subsidence issues and emergency call outs. We also do tree carving and are always looking for new challenges.


At Cut Above Tree Management we pride ourselves in delivering a friendly yet very professional service. Our tree arborists are fully insured and are able to give our service to all commercial and domestic customers that require our expertise. 


We've received a huge amount of praise since our business began; many customers stated that they received "excellent results, completed by a friendly, professional team." Testimonials like this demonstrate the high level of tree services we provide to all our customers.

We normally work 5 days a week, doing site visits and estimates in the evening or over the weekend.

Rick Glenn, Head Gardener, Dulwich Park, SE21 7BQ

"As Head Gardener at Dulwich Park I have had the opportunity over the past 4 years to observe the tree surgical talents of Hamish Lodge, Cut Above Tree Management. Hamish has always impressed me with his arbouricultural skills being very efficient, careful and accurate when tree felling, not damaging surrounding plants or structures whilst ensuring public safety. For these reasons I choose him for my private jobs too.

On a more personal level, he is a friendly positive person who always seems to be enjoying his work. No doubt this attitude will serve him well in his professional life. I'd like to take this opportunity to wish Hamish well and look forward to seeing more of his work in the future."
