Richard Lester

I’m Richard Lester and have been the principal of Tree Profiles Ltd since its formation in 2002.

I have been working in the Arboricultural Industry for over 30 years and for any service we provide you can also rely on the vast experience of my tree surgeon colleagues. Together we tackle every aspect of tree surgery including tree felling, sectional felling, tree planting, tree pruning, stump grinding, hedge trimming, crane work and mobile platform work. Plus, with all our tree surgery, our commitment to health and safety and property protection is total.

With this is mind, before every job I will visit your site to survey the task at hand and provide a detailed quotation. We always aim to carry out your request but we will also offer advice based on our years of experience.

But in everything, Tree Profiles Ltd is about providing the best tree surgery possible, taking great pride in our work and seeing the job through from start to finish.
