About Us


WTS offers full service tree and vegetation management – if it is anything to do with trees, from pruning to felling to complete site clearance, we can handle it. Stuart Wilson joined the industry in 1995 and spent 8 years gaining a wealth of experience in all aspects of tree surgery and forestry before setting up Wilson Tree Surgery in 2003 and becoming an incorporated company in 2009.

From domestic customers, local authority utilities, central government departments, social housing providers, NHS organisations, universities, colleges and schools, we have a proud 20 year heritage of satisfied customers and are one of the largest tree contractors in the South East.

Based in Sutton Valence, Maidstone, we operate a “one-stop-shop” approach to everything tree related with safety as a primary focus to everything we do. We provide a safe environment for our employees whilst developing a culture where everyone is accountable for working safely thereby ultimately managing and controlling risks in a high-risk sector. Our customers trust and rely on us to deliver a prompt, efficient, safe service.

With our focus on safety and being commercially minded, we have developed specialisms in sectors such as powerline and site clearance and have grown steadily since the company’s inception mainly through customer referrals. We pride ourselves on being large enough to undertake substantial contracts whilst ensuring that every customer receives the highest level of personal attention possible.

In addition we place high value on environmental sustainability (as you would expect from a company committed to vegetation management). We aim to minimise carbon emissions and recycle waste so that no waste is sent to landfill. We achieve this by processing suitable timber for firewood as logs and using any residual waste for heat generation either locally or in the form of chippings being used as biomass to heat power stations. We also encourage our clients to keep timber waste and woodchips to use for wildlife habitat purposes, thereby reducing our own transport emissions.

We aim to be the preferred supplier in our field by adding value for our business partners without compromising safety or the environment. We’re proud to be recognised as a first-class, highly effective contractor working within a network of award winning customers and suppliers.
