Wildwoods Tree Surgery Profile

Martin Rutherford has been involved in the arboriculture industry for over 26 years. Starting as a groundsman arborist and qualifying at Merrist Wood Agricultural College, Martin began work as a self employed contract Climber/Arborist.

In 1993 working for an Essex based tree company with multiple tree gangs, Martin became foreman overseeing and being accountable for multiple workers. He was also responsible for dealing with public domestic work, council contracts, construction site tree maintenance and maintenance of large domestic grounds. All types of tree work was undertaken including clearance maintenance - felling of large trees - dangerous dead trees - trees in awkward spaces - stump removal pruning - tree moving - planting etc.

After gaining much experience and knowledge of the business, Martin started Majestic Tree Surgery in 2005. He built a respectable, highly recommended and reliable local business. Much of the work was brought in by recommendation or repeat customers/contractors. In 2008, Martin decided to start a new family run business in the county of Kent with his wife Kelly. Leaving Majestic with a strong client base and superb reputation for the new management.

Martin left Essex and moved to Whitstable, starting Wildwoods Tree Surgery.

Martin has entered many climbing and cutting competitions over the years. This shows he really does enjoy his work! These have included receiving 1st place in South East of England Competition for Climbers and 15th in the British Open during the same year aged 26. Most recently he has gained 6th place in the East Anglian Open Championship. Against all variety of climbers, during the event, Martin was richly awarded the Most Improved Climber prize (judged on scores gained through the three year history of this competition). The East Anglian Game and Country Fair is a great weekend out for all of the family. Camping at the Norfolk Showground every year and normally competing on both days. It is always a very relaxed and friendly event. A great way to spend a weekend.
