Silver Tree Services Ltd. was set up by Paul Craddock in 2011 after ten years spent qualifying and gaining experience within the industry. Since then, Paul has assembled a skilled team of over twelve workers, from Site Supervisers to Labourers and everything in between.
Paul’s career started in tree felling, chemical spraying, tree recognition and tree surveying. This progressed onto managing teams throughout the South-West in tree works, including tree reduction and thinning, habitat management and finally a number of months expanding his knowledge working abroad in Australia and New Zealand.
After returning to the UK with a wealth of knowledge in all areas of the Horticultural and Arboricultural industry, Paul successfully set up Silver Tree Services Ltd. Together with his team, they focus on delivering a quality service in Gloucestershire, delivering everything from Tree Surgery to Landscaping projects, Fencing, Gardening and Maintenance.
Over the years, Silver Tree Services Ltd. has grown from one small team, to five teams of qualified professionals, supervisers and managers. Paul continues to oversee all works to ensure quality and professionalism are always delivered.
