Company info

We’re a professional company with years of experience based in Hedge End, operating all around Hampshire and surrounding counties. Over time we have built up a great clientele supplying the best hard and softwood logs around.
We have a great customer base due to our friendly and trusted service. We always welcome new customers and are happy to share our knowledge on firewood and arboriculture.

When it comes to our Tree services it's refreshing that all of the team genuinely care for and very much enjoy working in the industry. We have regular ongoing custom domestically and commercially. We are also proud to do work for several local authorities.
I started logging at the age of 13 and decided to learn more about the Arboricultural industry. After securing various qualifications, 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 is commercial or domestic, making sure we carry out all work to the British Standard 3998.

Giving the customer what they want is important to us from the initial phone call to the site visit. As long as both parties agree on professional work being undertaken in accordance to the laws.
We are insured up to 10 million public liability and 10 million employers liability which allows us to work in every eventuality. I only use the best climbers and groundsmen to carry out all work to the highest standard. Please don’t hesitate to read our testimonials from various satisfied customers.

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, hardwood and softwood we even mill up timber for furniture. We cut and log up all our wood and allow all wood to air dry and season until at the right moisture content. We cater for all orders no matter how small or large.
