Here at Beechwood Tree Care Ltd we are looking to recruit a Foreman.
We are a medium sized Arboricultural Association Approved Contractor based on the Oxfordshire/Berkshire Border, midway between Henley on Thames, Maidenhead and Reading.
Beechwood Tree Care has been established for 15yrs and have an extensive client base.
In the main we work for domestic clients, large estates, local schools and universities, various developers and other commercial clients. We do very little LA work and no Utility work. We focus on high quality work and service to retain and gain customers.
We have lots of equipment with all our trucks and chippers relatively new and we constantly reinvest to keep it that way. We have just purchased a new 21m tracked MEWP and where possible we try to mechanise jobs to save on wear and tear on bodies and make things more efficient.
