About Us

access2trees is a well know Shropshire based company.

Company director, James Plaskett, has many years experience in the tree surgery industry, and holds a wide range of arboricultural qualifications.  Built on his extensive knowledge of the biochemical, structural and growth processes of trees and their life cycles, his passion for tree surgery led him to launch access2trees in early 2009.  Since then the business has grown from strength to strength and in 2015 access2trees became a Limited Company.

access2trees currently runs two teams of experienced arborists, including in-house tree surveyors, along with an administration team headed up by James’ sister Emma (who are accompanied in the office by our two faithful Labradors, Paddy and Fynn!), and in 2016 James and his wife Amy joined forces to offer a Landscape Design Service.  We are a family company and pride ourselves on our strong values and a commitment to provide a warm and friendly service across all sectors of the business.
