A Little About me

I'd like to introduce myself. My name is Dan Burton, I was born and raised in the village of Croxdale 3 miles from Durham City, and I am the owner here at Special Branch Tree Services.

After leaving school I went on to study arboriculture at Houghall Collage in Durham followed by additional studies in Countryside Management at Newton Rigg College in Penrith.

Following my studies I carried out many roles in the industry to enhance by knowledge and experience that has allowed me to advise my clients on the correct course of action when meeting to discuss requirements.

In 2011 I set up Special Branch Tree Services and I am proud to say I have grown a good, strong and loyal customer base, that return to use my service time and time again.

I pride myself in being polite and friendly and above all put customer service at the heart of my business, and I thrive off customer satisfaction.

What Our Customers are saying

“I just finished watching your team remove a large tree from my property and I felt the need to write and thank you and your team for doing an outstanding job. From cutting them down to the most immaculate clean up I have ever seen. After   finishing the job they cleaned up all the mess and removed all the rubbish, my garden was left looking immaculate. Job well done, and highly recommended”. Mrs Johansen
“As a single women, I didn’t really know where to go for this type of service, but I was recommended Special Branch Tree Service from my neighbour. I had two small trees removed from my back garden yesterday and just thought I would show a   little courtesy and say thank you. The trees were removed quickly and professionally and everything was left gleaming. Excellent rates and professional work and will most defiantly be using you again".Miss Newey
“Lots of care and attention went into the work Special Branch Tree Services have just completed in my Dad’s garden. Now that he is elderly and is unable to do it himself, he was wary of getting an external company in to look after his pride and joy. He was not disappointed and neither was I with the way the team engaged with my Dad to ensure he got what he wanted. Use Special Branch Tree Services for first class customer service”. Miss Barrclough
