About Us

Kestrel Arboricultural Services is a family run business based in Hockley, Essex. Our director and senior tree surgeon Barrie Atherton, has over ten years experience as an arboriculturist and is more than qualified to discuss, suggest and complete any tree work you require. Our entire team are City and Guilds NPTC certified and we are fully insured to cover you and us whilst we work.

As a family owned and operated company we understand the importance of customer satisfaction and we strive to offer you an excellent service from start to finish. We work in both the domestic and commercial sectors, with some of our commercial clients including The Environment Agency and The Essex Wildlife Trust.

Before any work commences, our tree surgeons will carry out legal checks to identify whether your trees are covered by Tree Preservation Orders or are in a Conservation Area. We can also submit an application for tree work on your behalf to the local authority, a process which usually takes six to eight weeks.

Although we are based in Hockley, we also work in Rochford, Southend-on-Sea, Chelmsford and cover most of South-East Essex. Please get in touch for more information on the areas we cover or if you would like a free no-obligation quote.
