Chapel Tree Services, based in Ross on Wye, Herefordshire was established in 2005 by Matt Long. It became incorporated in 2015 with his wife Jenny joining the limited company as Commercial Director.
Matt has nearly 20 years of tree care experience and is fully qualified with an HND in forestry, RFS certificate in Arboriculture, plus all the relevant practical qualifications and specialist First Aid training. His passion for trees developed as he grew up in the Wye Valley (AONB), one of the most tree covered areas of Great Britain. As well as working for various forestry and tree care companies in the UK, he has also spent time working in the commercial production forests of Finland and on the privately owned Baronscourt Estate in Northern Ireland. In America he spent 18months as a Climbing Aborist with Savatree in Boston, Massachusetts.
Jenny is an experienced Business Manager, who takes responsibility for all commercial, administrative and HR aspects of the business.
Both Matt and Jenny also volunteer for DART International, the Disaster Arborist Response Team, a charity run by volunteers that sends Arborists in to disaster zones to clear trees after natural disasters. Matt was on deployment in October 2017 in the Caribbean, clearing roads and schools to support the aid relief. You can see their work at www.dartinternational.co.uk.
In September 2018 Jenny was appointed as a non-executive Director to the Board of Trustees for the Arboricultural Association, a charity dedicated to the support and promotion of trees and the professionals who care for them. Her aim is to promote the Arboricultural Profession in the UK, ensuring the public are well informed and know what to look for in an Arborist and that rogue traders are replaced by the types of professional organisations who will ensure trees are properly managed and protected.
Matt and Jenny run all day to day aspects of the business, surrounded by a team of highly skilled, passionate and fully qualified Arborists. They pride themselves on providing a personal, yet highly professional tree care service.
Our environmental commitment
We recycle 100% of all the green waste produced from our tree operations. Woodchip is used by customers as a weed suppressant for flower beds and any excess is used on a local organic farm. Logs are the other green waste product and these are split and used as firewood or cut to lengths and sold as timber.
