Tree surgery on The Mendips

If you live in the Mendips and need a tree surgeon for tasks such as tree felling, hedge cutting, pollarding or tree thinning and reduction, Tibbs Tree Surgeons can help. We’ve been serving Mendip Hills areas such as Glastonbury, Frome, Shepton Mallet, Street, Wells and the Chew Valley for nearly two decades. We’re based in Radstock so it’s easy for us to provide you with a prompt response at a reasonable price.

Over the years, we have helped numerous people in the Mendips ensure their trees and hedges are safe and looking their best – or if a tree or hedge needs removing, we can do that too. Our founder, Alan Tibbs, studied arboriculture at Radstock College, then went to Lackham college to complete his Royal Forestry Society (RFS) certificate in arboriculture. He and his team know Glastonbury, Frome, Shepton Mallet, Street and the Chew Valley very well.

Facts about the Mendips

The Mendip Hills, commonly known as the Mendips, are located south of Bristol and Bath in Somerset, running east to west between Weston-Super-Mare and Frome. The highest part of the hills, in the west, has been designated an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The hills are largely formed of limestone, which is quarried in several places, and they support a rich range of plants and wildlife.

The Mendips are a popular area for outdoor sports, offering plenty of adventures for climbers, hillwalkers and cavers. For those who want a more leisurely look at some of the area’s stunning caves, a visit to Wookey Hole Caves is a perfect day out.

The Mendip Hills are also known for their beautiful country towns. Glastonbury is a new age centre packed with unusual shops and interesting restaurants. A walk up its tor gives breath-taking views of the Somerset Levels, while Glastonbury Abbey is a beautiful ruin steeped in history.

Frome is a picturesque small town with a thriving music scene, excellent pubs and restaurants and a host of interesting boutiques. Water from a spring outside the Church of St John the Baptist flows down the centre of charming, medieval Cheap Street in the centre of the town.

Shepton Mallet is a bustling market town dating back to Roman times. It offers plenty of interesting attractions including Shepton Mallet Prison, Kilver Court Gardens and Cranmore Railway Station with its working steam train.
