Sussex’s friendly tree surgeons

Arboricultural Excellence tree surgery is a small, family-run business that is owned and managed by Rowan Mellor. Based in the small hamlet of Wiston, near Steyning, we provide tree surgery skills to most of Sussex and the South East.

The company was formed in 2003 when Rowan, after many years immersed in the world of trees, decided to ‘go it alone’. Wanting to take a different approach to other tree surgeons, he started to look from the trees’ perspective – to tell their side of the story. With this in mind, it’s a founding principle of the company that trees and people should be able to co-exist if both needs are understood. So, whilst working with our clients and their trees we will always try and offer pragmatic solutions to most problems that come along.

Nevertheless, we’ve had to remove many trees in the past when there has been no suitable alternative. However, where humanly possible, we try to ensure that all of the parts of the tree are put to good use. Whether that’s for building timbers, log wood to keep people warm or woodchip mulch for the flower beds.

Arboricultural Excellence offers a complete tree surgery – tree pruning, tree felling, stump grinding and tree planting. All services are in-house and undertaken by our experienced operatives who are trained to cope with whatever the job throws at them. All our Staff are trained to NPTC standards as a minimum, and we are fully insured for any size job.

Over the years Arboricultural Excellence has grown a wide client base that ranges from private clients/landowners to Parish councils and large corporations. All of which have their own needs that are met to the highest standard by our expert tree surgeons. We pride ourselves on our personal touch, ensuring every customer feels as valued as the next.

You can trust us to look after all your tree surgery needs…remember ‘trees have feelings too’, so choose the right team for the job!
