Derek Croft, the founding manager at Greencroft Treework Ltd set up the business 15 years ago whilst practicing as a forester in the Yorkshire area. Derek was introduced to the forestry industry as a tractor driver. The first test was to drive a skidding winch extracting logs from out of the woodlands. Derek developed vast experience in tree felling in woodlands where he practiced to fell thousands of trees of every size.
After working in the industry for 5 years, Derek moved in to tree surgery and retrained to climb trees using a rope and harness. Ten years ago he set up the business Greencroft, the business name was thought up as the business is green, whilst Derek's surname is Croft - together Greencroft. He then launched the business to being a limited company creating Greencroft Treework Ltd. The business has thrived through the last decade, battling through the world recession and growing the company in every way possible. Greencroft Treework Ltd now employs 5 very friendly, professional staff.
