Providing the highest standard of arboricultural care in the North East of England for over 30 years.


Wark Forest Landscapes was established in 2004 by Tim and Stephnie Fathers, but their roots in the arboricultural industry go back as far as 1987. Their first business was one of the top ‘Approved Contractors’ in North Hertfordshire, carrying out tree work for Hertfordshire District Councils for 14 years.


Thanks to a strong worth ethic, customer focus, and high standards of tree work, Wark Forest has continued to grow over the years. Our main client base has grown organically through personal recommendations from the many customers we have carried out tree work in Hexham for, as well as throughout the NorthEast. We are proud to have been considered for tree work in some stunning locations over the years, including Northumberland National Park, The National Trust, The Woodland Trust, and private estates throughout the county of Northumberland. We also serve a number of local parish councils, grounds maintenance companies, and of course private residential customers.


As the business has grown we have expanded our professional services to undertake tree safety inspections and written reports. These tree reports are carried out on a regular basis for a number of schools across the North East region, as well as forestry contractors, parish councils, and private landowners who have a duty of care to monitor trees on their property.
