George Walker (Tree Care) Ltd was incorporated as a Limited Company in 1992. It brought together the forestry arm of George Walker Ltd, a Syston based sawmill and timber merchant, with George Walker & Sons, a successful tree surgery business that had been trading from their base in Glenfield since 1953. The company has been trading for over 20 years, but we still draw on the experience of personnel who worked for both companies before the aquisition and merger. This experience has allowed George Walker (Tree Care) Ltd to continue to move forward as a business, gaining Arboricultural Association approval in 1991, and ISO 9001 Quality Management System accreditation in 2010. We are currently the official contractors for Leicestershire County Council and the Welland Park Partnership, which includes Rutland County Council, Charnwood Borough Council, Melton Borough Council and Market Harborough District Council.
