The Company

Tree Maintenance Ltd. was established in 1980 by Geoffrey March to provide a quality service of tree care and advice in the Stroud area, Gloucestershire and surrounds. He was joined in 1984 by co-director Stephen Cullis and together they managed the Tree Advice & Consultancy and Tree Surgery areas, respectively.

In January 2011, Stephen took over as sole director and Geoff moved to an Associate Consultant role, whilst beginning a partial retirement. Ken Sheppard, a chartered arboriculturalist with over 24 years experience joined Tree Maintenance at this time as the company’s Senior Arboricultural Consultant.

In February 2014, Geoff decided to embrace a (very well-earned) full-retirement, relinquishing the role of Associate Consultant.

Tree Maintenance strives to comply with or exceed all Health and Safety legislation, with all team members having appropriate NPTC training and certification.

Our office is fully staffed 5 days a week from 9:00am – 3:30pm with emergency contacts available out of hours.

For many years we have fund-raised for our chosen charity Tree Aid, based like us in the South West and providing aid to those less fortunate than ourselves when it comes to tree cover.
