We are a family run business which my father started around 30 years ago and in this time we have built up a great clientèle supplying the best hard and soft wood logs around. We have a great customer base due to our friendly and trusted service and always welcome new customers and happy to share our knowledge on firewood and arboriculture.

I started logging at the age of 13 and at 16 decided to go to college to  study  in arboriculture.  After securing various tickets in tree surgery and logging. I started a small tree team that has developed over the years. Covering all aspects of tree & hedge work. All members of the team are friendly, hard working and  all with the relevant NTPC skilled qualifications. No job is to BIG or SMALL and stay true to my word. I only use the best climbers and groundsman to carry out all of our work to the highest standard. Please don’t hesitate to read our testimonials  from various satisfied customers.

For the last 20 years I have worked alongside my father running the family log business, as well as keeping the tree and hedge work operating in tandem.

In 2010 I decided to buy a kindlet kindling machine to produce my own kindling wood made out of the finest soft wood.  All kindling is barn stored and dry. We provide a high volume of bags wholesale and household. We cater for all orders no matter how small or large.

  1. Had some extensive work done on some large fir trees and an old apple tree these people care about their customers ,their work, were clean efficient and tidy I would gladly recommend them.

  2. If you want 1st class tree surgery by people who know what they are doing, and a service second to none, then look no further than W.G.S. Kindling.
    Wesley and the team did an excellent job and were extremely professional in every way. They arrived on time, completed the job in time and left the site extremely tidy. In terms of the price quoted for the work I felt it was exceptionally good value for money, especially in view of other quotes that I received which were much higher. I would not hesitate to recommend Wesley and the team, and have done so to my friends and family. Thanks again for doing a great job Wes !

  3. Last year we needed some conifers removed from the from the front of our house. I contacted a local firm “WGS Kindling.”
    The same day Wesley came to our home and gave us a very reasonable estimate for the work to be carried out. I asked Wesley to remove the trees the following week and both he and his fellow workers carried out the work in a clean and professional manner. I would be happy to recommend their services.

  4. A great job done. I called Wesley after another local company failed to get the job done. They worked really hard where others had failed. Very professional service with good customer follow-up.

  5. A great team of guys cut down a large tree, disposed of and tidied up within an hour. Would recommend to anyone. Gave me some useful tips with other trees in my garden so overall very pleased.

  6. We used Wesley and his team for a awkward job of a row of large coniferous trees in a garden centre. Health and safety was a major concern, along with leaving the site clean as we also wanted the roots of the trees ground out. His team did an excellent job, starting at 6 am to prevent any inconvenience to the garden centre, and using a chipper to take away all the waste. Everything was finished within two hours. Their price was competitive, they were fully insured, and they used the necessary safety equipment. We would recommend them and will be using them in future.

  7. I have just had a large row of conifer trees taken down by Wesley and his team. They used a chipper to take away waste, also cut up some logs for me to use for my wood burner and taking away any logs I did not need. Very pleased with how hard working the team are. I would highly recommended W.G.S to anyone wanting any tree / garden work done. Thankyou again for all your hard work

Felled two very large conifers, lopped and shaped various other trees in our garden and removed a large stump with the grinder. All debris was chipped and taken away. Will definitely use them in the future and will recommend them. Also, had a truck load of seasoned hardwood logs delivered by Garth for our wood burning stove. All quotes very reasonable. Thank you, guys.

  13. I had some trees removed by Wes earlier this week. He visited on Monday to inspect/quote and the job was all done 24 hours later.

He was reasonably priced too so I would have no hesitation in recommending his services.

  16. Borderland Fencing

    Second time we have used Wes and his team. Large rotten ash overhanging a large fence and road, with telephone cables. Had to be taken down in sections and all waste disposed of. Started at 8.a.m and finished by lunchtime. Excellent workmanship with high regard to health and safety, especially as the road had to be temporarily closed.Impressed that they knew the latin name for ash die-back! Highly recommended.

  17. Started using WGS last year been doing some work for me in my gardens I look after. and have been great can’t say a bad word about the company. They just removed some trees from a garden in grange park. Great job once again. Will be using them in the future.

  18. Thank you to Wes and his cheerful team (despite the weather) who did a fantastic job felling 5 trees from our garden.
    He was helpful and knowledgeable about trees with protection orders and we will certainly be using him in the future to prune/remove further trees once we have the authority from the city council.
    All cleared away including driveway and pavement, have already recommended him to several neighbours.

  19. Wes and his team did a very professional job, removing a couple of trees and more importantly a brilliant job on pruning and shaping a corkscrew tree and has improved the look of the property from the high street.
    Makes a change to find a local tradesman that takes pride in his work, and everything was tidied and cleared away.
    Thank you Wes and your team.
