 King & Son Tree Surgery

We are a family business that has been running for 25 years and was founded by Jim King (My Dad) in 1990 during a recession. Jim had always wanted to run his own business and had always enjoyed working with trees. So at the age of 40 he decided to become self employed doing garden maintenance, coppicing, tree work and selling logs.

As time went on Jim gained more experience, qualifications, tools and equipment etc. I soon learnt about the Arboricultural industry as I always helped Dad on and off when I was not at school and eventually decided to leave a job in the tool hire industry at 20 years old, become qualified as a tree surgeon and started working with Dad. 

Fast forward to the present day and Dad is now semi retired and I now have the reins for the business. I am currently 31 years old and have gained much experience in this industry including sub contracting to other companies including tree and bank clearance work on the railways, local Council tree work, Kent Wildlife Trust contracts, training others to become qualified and I have gained much more knowledge of the industry following a Level 4 Diploma course in Arboriculture at Merrist Wood College.
