Spring/Summer 2014 News

We have been enormously busy lately dealing with the ‘lush’ start to the growing season! A wet winter coupled with a relatively mild spring has seen excellent growth extension on all trees and shrubs. We have also been busy processing all the timber we took last year in to logs for sale this coming winter. We have some excellent quality wood in stock this year so please do give us a call towards the end of the summer to place [...]

Spring 2015 News

We have had a very busy start to 2015 with several large projects now completed in addition to our regular domestic work. The weather has thankfully been relatively kind to us this winter with the exception of the odd miserable, muddy day where waterproofs and drying out smelly ropes in the airing cupboard have been the order of the day! It certainly makes us appreciate the good days. We have invested heavily in new equipment over the last 3 months [...]

Winter 2015/16

2016 is a milestone year for the Company as it is 10 years since I graduated from College and set up the business on my own with an old Land Rover Discovery and a trailer, a couple of chainsaws and a lot of very ‘green’ energy and enthusiasm! A part-time employee soon followed and the Company was born. I remember those early days well, climbing on a 3 knot system, burning everything we could wherever we could and dreaming of [...]

Summer 2016

Now that Summer is firmly behind us and we have had the first (albeit light) frost of the Autumn, I have had a chance to draw breath after the busiest Summer we have experienced in 10 years of business and write this. We have managed to keep the weeks packed full with the generally good weather. Tom Davies who has been with the Company since January 2012 left to move on to pastures new at the end of September after [...]

We have had an exceptionally busy end to the year and a good 2016 [...]
