BTS Group official logo


Founded in 1993, our company has grown to become one of the UK’s
leading utility arboriculture businesses.

bts started in the tree business. We now use a variety of traditional and modern methods for keeping vegetation and trees under control and well within legislation driven standards. Working on behalf of electricity distribution network operators, we enable them to provide a resilient and sustainable service to their customers.

Our commitment is total: to delivery; to your satisfaction and to safety.

We are tree experts who are used to working with and near to powerlines in safety.
