About Me
Hello, My name is Graham and I've been involved with trees, hedges and wildlife for nearly forty years.
I have worked as a tree surgeon since 1979 and studied trees at Reaseheath College in the mid-eighties.  I laid my first hedge at the age of 18...thinking back I didn't make that good a job of it!  My earliest recollection of a laid hedge is from a very early age when my dad was cutting and he laid from the 1920s so maybe it's in my blood?
II love laying hedges and have recently decided to enter local and national competitions again having last competed in the eighties. I lay mostly in our local style (Stafford) but also Midland, Cheshire and Derby styles.
In our local matches I have done well gaining mostly first places in my class over the last two seasons.

In the National Hedge Laying Championship 2016 I finished first cutting in the Derby style open class which I repeated in 2017.

In 2016 I was privileged to be invited to compete at HRH Prince Charles's Highgrove estate Patron's competition.  A nervous day and was delighted to win and meet Prince Charles.

If you need a hedge laid I would be happy to quote or give advice on your hedge.

Well apart from laying hedges I undertake tree surgery jobs and carry out work to very high standards.  This can range from trimming conifer hedges to remedial work on some of the countries most ancient trees. Previous clients have included: English Heritage, The National Trust and English Nature. 
I am always happy to quote for tree surgery, tree felling or any of your garden needs in Staffordshire and surrounding areas.
I also undertake some chainsaw carving work; a few examples of which can be seen on this page.

Maybe you fancy 'having a go' at hedge laying?  I can offer tuition on a single or group basis.
