MY STORY – Gavin Hendry

Having completed a successful career of 24 years in the HM Forces (Army), I have decided to turn my passion into my new career. I started trading as Gavin Hendry Tree Surgery & Grounds Maintenance in February 2017, where my business has developed and grown beyond my expectation.

My team are dedicated, professional and conscientious with everything we do. Being passionate about trees, gardens and the outdoors enables us to give 100% at all times.

As professional Arborists & Gardeners, we have the very best equipment to deliver a competitive service. My team and I have obtained many National Proficiency Test Council (NPTC) City & Guilds qualifications in Tree Surgery, which enable us to deliver a robust, professional, safe, efficient and reliable service guaranteed.

Always keen to undertake new challenges in life Jacob has swiftly become an integral team member who can be relied upon to deliver exactly what is asked of him to the very highest of standards.

Jacob has already completed many of the required NPTC courses which has helped me to grow the business beyond what I ever expected.
