A good time for a first?

While we are all on lockdown, we are fortunate to have the yard to give us some more space. Being a tree company my son has always been around trees and until late has shown little interest in climbing them. Until now.

We didn’t start small, we went with a 200 year old Oak tree. Go big or go home I told him. We got our harnesses and hard hats on, I set the ropes and off he went. Like a koala at first clutching the stem as if it were his Xbox controller, he finally moved along the bough and achieved his first limb walk.

Lowering him down was a nervy moment for him, with feet on terrafirma he raced back up to go again, and again, and again. The only advice I gave him was trust your equipment and trust me. He loved it and now he has decided he wants to be either a tree climber or a you tuber, and why not.

The main point of this tale is that while we are locked down, with time on our hands, it’s a great opportunity to try something new, experience something different. It doesn’t have to be an 80ft 200 year old Oak tree, perhaps a new language, a puzzle or playing a musical instrument.

What ever you choose, go for it, give it your best.

  • 5 star review  Recently Evoke Tree Services pruned my apple and pear trees for the second time, and cut my hedges back for the first time. I would highly recommend these lads who did a superb job and cleaned up all the cuttings afterwards. Nothing was too much trouble and I look forward to having them return next season for the same pruning. Laura, WGC.

  • 5 star review  Very pleased with the work carried out on our trees. Evoke were very punctual and very polite and cleared up after themselves. We wouldn’t hesitate to use them again.

  • 5 star review  Evoke Tree Services came to our rescue after a bunch of cowboys ‘rode into town’ to remove our back garden hedge and left the stumps in saying that wasn’t part of the deal. I should have spotted their spurs! Evoke was recommended to us, and they were in and out within the hour, everything done and dusted. Thank you Evoke for first class service. The old saying still stands: ‘Pay cheap, pay twice.’ We know where to go next time. 👍

  • 5 star review  I would highly recommend Evoke Tree Services. The guys did an excellent job cutting down a large Apple tree, that was dangerously leaning over, and grinding the stump away. They were professional, polite and it was great to see workmen following safety procedures and tidying up so well after themselves.
