About Us

Steve & Laura of Sussex Tree Care

I (Steve) am NPTC qualified and studied Arboriculture at Plumpton college as a mature student. I love working with trees and I am passionate about tree surgery and arboriculture.

I used to love climbing trees as a child, but took a different career path for many years, working in the medical industry. It was as a result of taking voluntary redundancy that I was able to pursue Tree Surgery and I am so happy that I did. It is hard but rewarding work, and I have met some wonderful people, both customers and colleagues along the way.

'We believe in using green energy wherever possible, and we heat our home with wood in a carbon neutral wood burner. This of course makes sense as most customers don't want to keep the wood from their trees so we recycle it.

I am married to the best woman in the world, Laura,  and we live in Withdean in Brighton in a cottage that we are continuing to renovate.

Laura is a Gardener & Sculptor. She works on commissions of busts of children and adults. She has a wide knowledge of plants and a creative flair for garden design, and doesn't seem to mind me coming home filthy and tired.
