About Us

Usher’s provides professional tree work and surveys for clients from domestic customers through to housing associations, local authorities, utilities, and facilities management firms. We cover London and the M25 area, Essex and Hertfordshire. We are an Arboricultural Association Approved Contractor and have the LRQA ISO 9001: 2015 Quality Management Accreditation.  We are based in Enfield, north London. Managing Director Rod Usher has been involved in the tree business since 1983.

Our local authority and housing association experience includes: the London Boroughs of Haringey, Redbridge, Barking & Dagenham, Southwark, Hackney, and Tower Hamlets; Peabody, Sovereign Network Group, and Southern Housing. We also work for domestic customers, offering skilled professional tree work at cost-effective rates.

We have a strong focus on safe tree work and have health and safety approvals from CHAS, SafeContractor, and Constructionline for which we are audited annually.

The company is committed to training and ongoing continual professional development. We hold a wealth of knowledge and certification at director level, managers, and the operational teams. These include BSc degree in Arboriculture & Amenity Forestry, NEBOSH Diploma and Certificates in occupational health and safety as well as accident investigation, IOSH managing safely, Level 6 Certificate in Arboriculture, professional tree inspection as well as an array of industry specific operational and supervisory certification including LANTRA and NPTC for our 15 tree work teams who use the latest equipment and machinery.

All tree work is managed on our SalesLogix software which allows every aspect of a job to be accessed and communicated, from acceptance through to invoicing.

Environmental commitment

We are a registered waste carrier with the Environment Agency. Woodchip generated from tree work is re-used as a biomass fuel product or provided to clients for local community initiatives. We regularly invest in the latest plant and equipment and our vehicles are Euro-6 compliant in line with ULEZ guidance. We offer a young tree maintenance service which includes planting and watering.


Usher’s runs an established and successful apprenticeship scheme with Capel Manor College, Enfield. We sponsor the college’s annual ‘Most Improved Apprentice Award.’ Some apprentices have developed successful careers with us.
