I started logging at the age of 13 and at 16 decided to learn more about tree surgery. After securing various tickets in in the industry. I started a small tree team that has developed in experience and size over the years. Covering all aspects of tree care and tree maintenance .
The team are extremely friendly, hard working and all with the relevant skilled qualifications. No job is too BIG or SMALL whether it commercial or domestic making sure we carry out all work to the British Standard 3998.

Here at W.G.S. we take immense pride in the fact we leave all work sites very tidy and also recycle almost 100% of our waste. Including wood chippings, hard wood and soft wood , wood milling . We cut and log up all our wood and allow all wood to air dry season until at the right moisture content.
For the last 20 years I have worked alongside my father running the family log business, as well as keeping the tree and hedge work operating in tandem. The last couple of years the tree business has really developed and due to our efficient and skilled work we keep on growing.
