Rick Glenn, Head Gardener, Dulwich
Park, SE21 7BQ
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
Dobson, Tree Officer, Southwark Council (Parks and Open spaces)
with Hamish Lodge, Cut Above Tree Management over the last 4 years, I have always been impressed
with the way in which Hamish is able to overcome very awkward dynamics when it comes to tree
surgery. We often request him to carry out emergency works which are dangerous as he has the
skill base and also the site safety to deal with this type of work. He is very personable and is
always a pleasure to work with.

I have worked
with Hamish Lodge, Cut Above Tree Management over the last 4 years. We look after some
prestigious clients in central London as well as housing associations and private clients, where
we have used Hamish to do all of our tree work. He is reliable both for estimating,
communicating with local authorities in regards to TPO and conservation areas, and finally to
carry out the tree work in what is normally a very tight schedule. Thank
Trees immediately in front of 156-170 Bermondsey Wall East, Thames.
We write to
thank you for the arboricultural work carried out to the above trees. The result is a
considerable improvement in their appearance and extra light for the facing houses, i.e. natural
light and also artificial light from the (previously obscured) street lamps on the Thames path.
The site was kept secure, cleared of cut branches etc and swept up and left tidy. Special thanks
go to Hamish and Andy the tree surgeons deployed on the day.

Hamish Lodge, who was recommended to me by a neighbour, has just this morning got rid of the
ugly great conifer, and a dead cherry tree, leaving me with one good cherry tree. Good and neat
work and reasonable price, so I can recommend him to others.

I had a total
nightmare with my cherry tree - I had some very poor work done on it before which almost ruined
it. I used a guy called Hamish Lodge from Cut Above and now it looks lovely. Very well priced
and professional. Thank you Hamish - will definitely use you again !
Can recommend Hamish Lodge. We got the number from the
thread on the East Dulwich Forum and he's just made a nice job of our ash tree. Very tidy
work plus also dealt with council as we're in a tree conservation area.
