The west Norfolk firm was set up by arboriculturist Edward Benton, who said it was “no stranger to working through challenging times”, having dealt with a recession in 2008 not long after being set up.

Mr Benton said: “It’s safe to say we’ve worked through some pretty interesting times over the years, but nature never stops, and trees tend to be a bit more predictable than people and economies.”
