Paradise tree surgeons have countless team members who live in and around Greenwich. Greenwich is a great place to live if you are a tree surgeon, landscaper, or gardener as there are many beautiful parks, gardens, houses, universities, museums, businesses and historic sites with a range of greenery ranging from hundreds of year-old tree stumps to freshly planted flowers.
For Greenwich tree surgeons, living in the area is paradise.
One of our team members actually went to the University of Greenwich for a few years before he decided he wanted to become a Greenwich tree surgeon at Paradise Tree Care.
He lived right in the heart of Greenwich on Diamond Terrace and would often walk through Greenwich Park to get to the University of Greenwich, London. He’d cut through Hyde Vale and then make his way onto Wellington Grove, which would take him past his old secondary school- St Ursula’s Convent Secondary School,and down Crooms Hill.
He told us that he always loved to read books on the thousands of types of trees, and it was a pleasure to walk through Greenwich Park every morning and examine the old and beautiful variety of trees contained within the park.
Old Royal Naval College
The Old Royal Naval College is said to be the “centrepiece”, or highlight, of Maritime Greenwich. The history of these established buildings and land date back centuries, all the way to King Henry VIII, and other famous royals, when he resided in Greenwich and built his own homes and parks.
Open to the public year round, and relying on a mixture of donations, ticket sales, funding, and retail income, the Old Royal Naval College discusses in great detail the captivating and fascinating history of Greenwich which you can read whilst being surrounded by “magnificent Baroque buildings and grounds”.
Old Royal Naval College is surrounded by other historic areas and buildings and national trust sites. Queen Anne Court, University of Greenwich is just a minute walk away. The Trafalgar Tavern is up the road if you’re feeling particularly peckish; you can have a hearty meal accompanied with a delicious beer as you watch the boats and ferries float past on the River Thames parallel to the Greenwich Pier – North Greenwich Pier.
He used to visit Ranger’s House off of General Wolfe Road and study the plethora of plants in its Rose Garden. From there he’d venture through Greenwich park and make his way to the Royal Observatory where he’d stop for lunch at his favourite place to eat, Park View Coffee Cabin.
You can walk to the Cutty Sark from the Royal Observatory down The Avenue, where you past the University of Greenwich. There are so many bars, restaurants, cafes, and diners in Greenwich. On your way to the Cutty Sark you will most likely past Greenwich Market, famous for its selection on foods, jewellery, gifts, sweetshops, clothes, and our personal favourites – pancake and churro stands!
