Gil Gordon


Over a number of years Stuart has carried out many different tasks for us and also for our village church. I have recommended him to many people. He is very knowledgeable and I completely trust his advice, as has been borne out by his excellent reshaping of an old chestnut tree for example. His team leave the site very tidy and we've always been grateful for his professional, reliable and accommodating manner re. timing of work and also the realistic cost.


We recently engaged Danbury Tree Surgery to prune our lime and beech trees. The whole service from the time of the quote to completion was delivered in a professional way. The team were both courteous and respectful and ensured the garden was left in a clear state .


Really pleased with the work Stuart and his team have completed for us recently - six conifers taken down, plus a huge bay tree. They were reliable, friendly, knowledgeable and left the garden really tidy. And the cost was reasonable too. Would definitely recommend and would use again.


We’ve used Danbury Tree Surgery for a number of years and Stuart and his team have never let us down. The work has always been great and at a fair price. Stuart has always been very honest on what needs to be done and definitely does not suggest work that is not required. Extremely trustworthy and professional. We will keep using Danbury Tree Surgery for many more years to come as they are simply the best around. Highly recommended!

About us

The Story of Danbury Tree Surgery

Ron and John Stockton

In the green splendor of Danbury, a special company was born of The Stockton Bros in the 1970's: Danbury Tree Surgery. Ron and John's deep love and devotion for nature shaped the foundation of this firm.

Stuart Biggs, taken in by the brothers as if he were their own son, carried on their legacy. He learned the art of tree care by their side, a knowledge that goes far beyond books.

As the founding era of the brothers ended, Stuart took the helm. He gave them his word to keep their vision and passion alive. Under his leadership, the company underwent gentle modernization without losing its soul.

Today, a team of certified professionals carries forward Stuart's and the Stockton brothers' legacy, united in the mission to treat trees with respect and care. 

Danbury Tree Surgery stands not only for expertise in tree care but also for a deeply rooted promise to preserve nature and its stories for future generations.
