Professional Tree Surgeons in Kent
Why Choose Us
All of our climbers are highly trained and have attended Merrist Wood college attaining a City and Guilds in Tree Surgery as a foundation qualification. This means that not only do they have the relevant NPTC chainsaw and climbing qualifications but they also understand the biology of trees and fully understand when, how and where to work on them.
Once they complete college they become a trainee climber within our company and are subjected to a further 4-5 years as an understudy to an experienced climber. This gives all of our climbers a wealth of knowledge and experience which in our opinion puts them head and shoulders above our competition when it comes to quality tree work.
We don't believe in resting on our laurels either with continuous training and staff progression high on our agenda. Scroll down this page to see a list of courses attended by our staff recently which keeps us at the cutting edge of knowledge within our industry.
When employing a tree surgeon in Kent you should always check for relevant qualifications particularly of the person inspecting your tree and making recommendations.This is to ensure that your trees' and property are in safe and knowledgeable hands. Having a chainsaw license does not qualify someone to make recommendations about the health or safety of your tree.

It is quite normal for us to have to control where every single branch is dropped
We provide a full and comprehensive arborist service with over 30 years of collective experience through day to day climbing operations and management. All aspects of tree work are carefully undertaken covering everything from planting and pruning to dismantling and felling. We treat each aspect of our service with equal professionalism and care, from meeting customers for the first time, to completing the work and finally clearing the site so that you wouldn't know we'd been there.
