Welcome to Devon Tree Services Ltd.

We are a tree specialist company based in the South West, between Newton Abbot and Totnes. Established in 1978, we are a family firm with a wealth of experience.

We undertake all aspects of tree work from domestic gardens with small trees and hedges, to very large sites which may require the use of mobile cranes or even helicopters to extract timber.

Our employees take pride in their work and our professional approach has earned us accreditation as approved contractors by the Arboricultural Association, our professional body.
