Something like this is needed ,  Drop is not required in this case only SELECT is needed.

SELECT * FROM
[DB].[dbo].[TABLE1]  a
INNER JOIN [DB].[dbo].[TABLE2]  b
ON a.col = b.col <<Matching columns from both the tables>>
WHERE a.TABLE_NAME1 = 'Tree'
AND b.TABLE_NAME2='Apple Tree: 3'

Hope it helps !!

TABLE_NAME1 condition work, the TABLE_NAME2 not work

TABLE_NAME2 = 'Apple Tree: 3'

That is long string in the TABLE_NAME2, can the statement use matching to match the relevant string.

 example
like eewqfewfsc |||| 1213123 Apple Seed:   000  Apple Tree:   3 dfasfasfasfsafsaf

Select * from table where table_name1 = 'tree'

Except

Select * from table where table_name1 = 'tree' and table_name2 like '%Apple Tree:%3%'

Hope it helps !!
