Sam Harris

Sam had his first chainsaw at the age of 14 and his love of tree work stemmed from there. He undertook the National Diploma of Arboriculture in 1998. Since then he has gone on to complete awards and courses in all aspects of tree surgery and maintains an updated portfolio of all mandatory and enhanced training.

Sam started his career at Fountain Forestry, where he worked first as a tree surgeon, then later as Team Lead, gaining valuable experience. By 2003, S E Harris Tree Services was formed and since then Sam has been working hard to establish the company as one of the most respected tree surgery businesses in the local area.

Sam and his wife Caroline moved to Mendip View Farm in 2014 in order to expand the business and ensure its future. The property had previously been owned by generations of Harris’s and they are thrilled to have been able to bring it back into family ownership.

Caroline Harris

Caroline has worked alongside Sam since 2010 whilst also continuing her career in healthcare. In January 2016 she joined the family business on a full time basis. This has enabled her to better manage her work commitments alongside jointly caring for their 3 children.

She holds all the relevant qualifications to enable her to undertake tree work and high rope work. Naturally, her healthcare background is also beneficial to the business.

Additional Contractors

We have a range of skilled sub contractors that we can call on when required to enhance our team.
