About Us

We’re a close-knit, family-run tree surgery with a strong foundation in our local community. Our small team of skilled Arborists brings years of experience, precision, and care to every project, ensuring the health and beauty of your trees are always our top priority. We take deep pride in our work, combining professional expertise with the personal touch only a family business can provide

Lawrence’s extensive journey within the tree world, enriched by years of hands-on experience, has cultivated a deep-rooted expertise that’s second to none. As the Co-Founder and Lead Arborist of Bencombe Tree Care, Lawrence prides himself on being approachable, hard working and with an eye for detail. Outside of work, Lawrence is often found getting his hands dirty in the garden or exploring in the woods with his two young boys. 

Lawrence’s partner in crime is Madelaine. Primarily handling all things behind the scenes, Madelaine ensures that every detail of our operation runs as seamlessly as possible. Priding herself on her people skills, Madelaine prioritises communication and efficiency above all else. Madelaine also enjoys her time on-the-tools, joining the team on site as a Groundswoman when she can.  At home, their two lively young boys keep Madelaine on her toes. She also enjoys escaping to the vegetable patch, home renovations and honing her bread baking craft.

We were very happy with the whole process of dealing with Bencombe Tree Care from the first enquiry to the end result. We needed a large tree reduced in size in a area that was not easily accessible. Lawrence and his team also sorted out the permission we needed from the council as the tree was in a conservation area. The work was done well and Lawrence and Tom left the place neat and tidy. We would have no hesitation in recommending them! Diana Stiles

I highly recommend Lawrence & Maddy. Really friendly and easygoing, helpful communication by email and in person, a tidy and efficient job. My magnolia is rejuvenated and no longer a leggy menace!

This is the third time Bencombe Tree Care have carried out work in our garden. We are always 100% satisfied with the end result and would not hesitate to use them again. Thank you very much to Lawrence and Tom for their hard work.

Great communication and service. We had a tree come down on our drive during a stormy night and Maddy & Lawrence sorted us out straight away!

Fabulous service from the Bencombe team. Hedges have never looked better and all the clippings were taken away. Would heartily recommend them.

Very highly recommended. We've had around 10 trees managed by Lawrence and Tom so far, including crown reduction, lifting, thinning and felling. Each and every time they do a fantastic job, along with excellent communications, timely arrival, and everything left tidy afterwards. Will definitely be using again and would recommend with gusto.

Great job done by Bencombe Tree Care. Communications from the first contact were great, we even got an email the night before the due date reminding us they were coming. On the day the work was done quickly and to a high standard. Great tidy up afterwards as well. Thanks all, I will happily recommend you to anyone asking.
