In September 2010, having worked in the Horticulture industry for several years, William Tarbet embarked on an Tree Surgery training course at the internationally renowned Merrist Wood Arboriculture College in Surrey.
On completion of the course William was lucky enough to join a skilled team of Arborists working in busy central London and learn the art of high quality tree pruning and complex dismantle jobs.
After perfecting his tree climbing and pruning skills William decided it was time to set up his own business and Tarbet Tree Care was born in January 2014

All small branches are processed through a wood chipper and the chippings are then used by a local Animal Sanctuary for ground bedding. If you would like some chippings for your garden, then please don't hesitate to ask. They are excellent for mulching flower beds and help to suppress weeds and lock in moisture.
Larger diameter branches are cut into logs then split and seasoned to use as firewood, ideal for wood burning stoves and open fires.
