Along with developing and growing the business, we’ve also nurtured new talent. Every year since 2006 we have taken on apprentices, and are committed to supporting the next generation of professional arborists. Apprentices learn diverse activities such as chainsaw work, aerial tree work, pruning, dismantling, and using appropriate machinery such as brushwood chippers. More on Arboricultural Apprenticeship Courses at Merrist Wood College here. If you are interested in a career in tree surgery, check out our opportunities here.
Having specialised in domestic gardens, in 2006 we also started working with corporate clients, property management, construction, Parish Councils and private schools and now look after a number of academies in the area.
In 2011 we took the huge step of becoming Approved Contractors by the Arboricultural Association, recognised as the highest accreditation for professional UK arborists and have passed every annual reassessment since.
By 2020 the business moved to much larger premises just outside Dorking, with an expanded office area and more space for the teams to operate in. There’s also now ample space for the vehicles that make the weekly journey to collect our woodchip to recycle into biomass fuel. No part of a tree is ever wasted!
We now cover all parts of Surrey, West Sussex, South London and sometimes further afield for certain clients, and are continuing to learn and grow and add new rings each year.
