‘It’s not just luck…’
“We have learned over the years that self actualisation is not just about money and job security. It is about development, having fun, feeling part of a team, camaraderie, feeling valued and working with like minded people.”
Simon Rotheram set up Beechwood Trees and Landscapes Ltd in 1998. Since those humble roots were planted (for want of a better pun…) the company has grown into one of the country’s leading tree surgery, arboricultural, and site vegetation contractors and is now recognised as one of the most forward thinking, innovative businesses within our industry.
In order to make a company great though, it’s not just hard work or even luck. It’s also a large part down to the company that you keep.
In the 22 years we have been trading, we have had many people come through our doors and have had the pleasure of not only working with some incredibly experienced professionals, we have also been able to reinvest in the industry by bringing on apprentices and beginners and teaching them what we know and have learnt. And whilst some of them have moved on to pastures new with the values and experiences gained here, some stayed with us and have progressed into senior positions.
One of the things we always pride ourselves on, and has set us apart from some of the other companies in the industry, has been the knowledge that we should always encourage the character and professionalism of our staff.
From beginners, apprentices, arborists, Team Leaders, Managers and Office staff, there are things that we all have in common.
They include an innate desire here to be professional, conscientious, have mutual respect for each other and to help each other to achieve shared goals. And our clients and customers can tell.
We repeatedly get positive feedback from our customers and clients reminding us what a great team of people we have working for us.
“Your guys have felled a tree at my house today.
I wanted you to know what fabulous people you have working for you and you should be proud of them”

On top of this, every week staff pull together to help each other’s teams out if they have finished their own schedules early and if no one needs assistance, they ask for more work.
As a Management Team, part of our roles are to nurture and develop this culture within our teams and to support them in order so that their days run as smoothly as possible.
We have learned over the years that self actualisation is not just about money and job security. It is about development, having fun, feeling part of a team, camaraderie, feeling valued and working with like minded people.
We must be doing something right!
You just have to visit our depot after work to see the staff here chewing the fat well after they have clocked out, or having a laugh over social media over the weekend, everyone looks out for each other, like one big work family.
Keep up the good work #teambeechwood
