James George Tree Surgery removed two large trees with great skill and care in addition to providing expert assistance at our local Nature Reserve ‘Herbert Plantation’.

He has skilfully felled a number of dangerous trees there for me, and is a valued member of the volunteer group.

I enthusiastically recommend him to my friends who might need his services. Customer-1Neil Bruce - Chairman of Herbert Plantation Management committee
James and his team have worked for me on many occasions in the last few years.

The work has ranged from simple tree pruning to taking down huge, dangerous trees and removing cable bracing.

On every occasion James has discussed all options with me and carried out the work in a very professional and friendly manor. Customer-2Alison Halford -

Meet James


I always wanted to work outdoors but it took me a while to get there. My first job was working on the Wentworth Golf course which I loved. A number of years ago I decided to take a risk and follow my heart and enrolled at Moulton college. Where I completed, with distinction, a two year course in Arboriculture. I have been a tree surgeon ever since.

Realising how much more I had to learn, I successfully obtained a Technicians Certificate in Arboriculture, the result of two years of hard, part time study at Merrist Wood College. The level four qualification which covers all aspects of Tree Surgery at a deep level is respected as a high level of achievement throughout the Industry.

I am also now employed at Capel Manor College, where I help run their apprenticeship programme. I particularly enjoy helping progressing young tree surgeons and passing on my enthusiasm and considerable experience. The college regularly send me on courses to ensure that I have all the latest information relevant to the industry to enable me to represent to college in the best possible light.
