James Ford – Proprietor

James studied Arboriculture at the world renowned land based Merrist Wood College.

On achieving his qualifications he gained valuable experience working for several different major tree surgery companies based in the UK and in Australia. It was this experience that spurred James onto founding Chartfords Trees in 2009. Since then the company has gone from strength to strength and is now a well-established local company with a good solid customer base in and around the Oxted area. In 2014 the company became Chartfords Trees Limited.
James is now seeking to continue his knowledge by returning to Merrist Wood in 2013 to complete the Arboriculture ABC Level 4 Award, Certificate and Diploma alongside continuing to run the company and the team.
