About Tree Of Life Arboriculture

Established in May 2021 by Ben and his partner Becky, we are a small, family-run business based in Kempshott, Basingstoke, UK.

About Ben.

Ben trained as an Arborist in New Zealand in 2018, completing the NZQA Level 4 Certificate in Arboriculture at Otago Polytechnic, before returning to the UK to explore and experience tree work in another country.


While training and working in New Zealand Ben volunteered at numerous National and International tree climbing competitions, including the 2019 APTCC – The Asia/Pacific Tree Climbing Competition held in Christchurch Botanical Gardens.

What our clients say about us.

Ben and his team have been excellent. I had a very large tree which sadly needed to be removed and Ben and his team took me through the process with real professionalism.

The job was completed on time, and the guys cleared up beautifully.
Great work and absolutely recommended.
Giorgio Framalicco
The most pleasing experience, lots of tree work and neglected overgrown hedges to deal with, perfect teamwork, huge old Sycamore thinned and trimmed carefully to retain a natural look, not butchered at all! We couldn’t recommend this Tree of Life more; polite and considerate throughout a very hard three days of heavy work!
Vernon White
A brilliant job very easily arranged and very efficiently done with care and great generosity of spirit. Our yew hedge and nearby yew tree is now trim, tidy and looking good for another year. The guys were very helpful, left the garden tidy...tidier than when they arrived...and checked that we were happy with everything. We certainly are.
