About R Bell Tree Services, Norfolk

The company was established by Robert Bell in 1999 trading as R Bell Tree Services with one member of Staff building up to two Teams of two including Robert. 


In 2005 Robert purchased his first truck mounted hydraulic platform to make jobs faster and safe, this platform then started getting hired out to other tree surgeons so over the next year or so more platforms were purchased. In September 2006 R Bell UK Ltd was formed mainly hiring our different types of platforms, with Robert as Director. In April 2008 R Bell UK Ltd purchased R Bell Tree Services this merged R Bell Tree Services with R Bell UK Ltd allowing the Company to grow to 9 members of Staff and allowing the Tree Teams to have access to a range of platforms depending on the requirements. 


In September 2008 the hire side of the Company was sold so that the Company could concentrate on the tree surgery, leaving six members of Staff and Robert.


To make use of waste products the Company started splitting and selling firewood in 2011 and our woodchip is collected and sold as biomass and sent off and used in power stations to create energy.

Due to demand most recently we have started doing tree reports which are risk assessments on trees, planning and trees, mortgages and trees.

In November 2015 we purchased our first Premises and Yard at Lyngate Industrial Estate in North Walsham. At the last count the Company has 10 employees.

Our most recent purchase has been our 35m Access Platform which is available to hire with qualified operator.
