In January 2012 Redwood Tree Services Ltd were successful with a planning application for change of use from agricultural to timber storage & wood chipping processing operation at Ruxbury Farm, Chertsey.

Redwoods Tree Station will continue to supply high quality woodchip to both TV Bio-energy and Slough Heat and Power.

Surrey County Council where very supportive in Nick and Tina's proposed Tree Station with a decisive 11 votes in favour. The Tree Station meet very strong opposition from Runnymede Borough Council and was referred to Surrey County Council in late 2010 for consideration.

On the 13th May 2011 After a six year long legal battle Tina & Nick of Redwood Tree Services Ltd won a ' Passing Off ' action brought against Warren Aspey , Coopers Hill, Eversley, Hampshire, trading as Redwood Tree Surgeons.

Warren Aspey was found guilty in the Patents County Court a division of the High Court of 'Passing Off ' after a 3 day trial and as a result an Injunction preventing him from trading , advertising and procuring work in all GU , KT and SL post codes with the name Redwood or any other similar name that could cause confusion with Tina's company Redwood Tree Services Ltd was put in place, although the Judge felt it neccessary to attach a penal notice to the injunction that if any of the conditions of the injunction were not adhered to may result in a prison sentence.

Warren Aspey was also told to display the High Court Citation on his website for six months ,although the injunction is permanent.

For the second time in 21 years Nick and the lads were called to rescue a cat in West Byfleet which had somehow lodged its self in a sycamore tree for about 24hrs, Nick went up on ladders tied into the tree and then carefully approached the moggy she was very welcoming and was very happy to climb into the racksack attached to Nicks front, Nick zipped it up and proceeded to ascend to the ground. The cat was extremely pleased to see her owner, another successful rescue!

Another unsuspecting member of the public was conned out of £800.00 cash for trimming 8 small branches of an Oak tree and an Ash tree, Nick looked at the quality of workmanship and was shocked by the condition of the cuts left on the tree and the small amount that had been trimmed,I estimated that the total cost of the work that had been carried out was approximately £100.00.
