Welcome to Bruks Tree Surgery

                   & Bruks Tree Carving

Bruks Tree Surgery is a unique family run business with a military-backbone; offering great service since its creation in 2008 – when Bruk completed his service of 23 years in the British Army. Based in Thanet and Canterbury, BTS covers every aspect of Tree Work and Garden Maintenance throughout the Kent region, employing many ex-military staff to maintain both precision and manners within an industry not often renowned for either!
BTS is very proud to work with The Prince’s Trust and with several local Primary and Secondary schools, in order to offer the relevant key skills and experience to many young people interested in the Arboricultural Industry and Creative Wood Carving.
BTS cover Dover, Deal, Sandwich, Canterbury, Faversham, Whitstable, Herne Bay, Medway & Thanet.
Your needs for a Tree Surgeon or for Garden Maintenance might only involve pruning small trees and shrubs or reducing height and side growth from your hedge or you may simply need a stump removed. It may be more substantial, where the complete dismantle of a large or dangerous tree close to your home is required or a full ground site-clearance job may need to be carried out for new building work to take place. BTS can happily accommodate all of these varied work requirements.

BTS has also carried out extensive contract work for track-side tree clearance on the railway lines and from this, we are now able to offer a BTS crew Fully PTS trained, experienced and ready to go. The BTS crew are all fully-qualified and experienced in their Tree, Ground and Aerial Rescue roles for all domestic and commercial work and each crew member holds a Level 2 Emergency at Work First Aid qualification.

Further to this, BTS are also Street-Works accredited, which allows the crew to work on all Commercial jobs that require Traffic Management to be in place.

In short, we love what we do – we know what we are doing and we understand how to do it all safely!

Bruks Tree Carving adds another dimension to Bruks Tree Surgery, as you might prefer to leave the stump in your garden exactly where it is and have Bruks Tree Carving create a little magic out of it! You may wish to have a simple chair carved out of the tree trunk in order to make a practical use from it, or you may wish to add a natural, creative eye-catching sculpture to your garden and have Bruks Tree Carving cut and sand the design to your perfection. Bruks Tree Carving also offers a niche service of creating table-top carvings for those who would like to capture an idea from a smaller piece of nature to perhaps display inside the home, or offer as a gift to a loved one.

If you would like to see one of Bruk’s African themed Carvings, then you will find one of a traditionally clothed African pregnant lady displayed in the Powell-Cotton Museum & Gardens situated in Quex Park, Birchington.

Bruks Tree Surgery can meet all of your requirements using a variety of techniques to adapt to the landscape and we endeavour to climb the trees in question using either ropes & harnesses or hooks & straps, rather than cranes and lifts.
We understand the varied Kent environment and the need to often work close to animals as well as in close proximity to homes or office buildings. Bruks Tree Surgeons pride themselves on the vast choice of equipment available to use for each individual job, from large Chainsaws and Stump Grinders to the humble petrol mower and secateurs.
We are; most importantly, fully qualified, fully insured and completely reliable. The majority of the BTS crew are from a military background where precision, dependability and courtesy form the backbone of our service. All tree surgeon operations are carried out to the relevant British Standard BS3998: 1989; all work is undertaken to within the current Health and Safety Executive recommendations; AFAG (Arboriculture & Forestry Advisory Group) directives and to Arboricultural Association guidelines and directives currently in use.
We are NPTC qualified
