Company info

We combine quality workmanship with a personal service. We believe in a hard days work and we always work to high standards.
 

"Over sixteen years I have now been working in the arboriculture industry, completely by accident I stumbled upon this path. But as soon as I started working with trees I knew it was going to be a lifelong career. This is a job that has taken me to four different countries carrying out varied work and all over the UK.

During my time as a freelancer I have gained a wealth of experience from dozens of companies and individuals, all of whom have influenced me along the way. Whilst this has been a great experience, at First Arboriculture I want to improve some of the practices I have seen. My team and I strive to be foremost honest about tree work, and the best approach to maintaining your trees healthily and safely, we will never recommend unnecessary work, and we always make sure our work is aesthetically pleasing not just to yourselves from your own view, but that of the surrounding neighbourhood, as trees are a valued part of our environment which we share with each other and the animals that live on this Earth."

 

"Not only are they pleasing to our eye, but they are paramount in maintaining the ecosystems on our land in which we are all dependent upon for survival."
