"My business today has its roots in the original family business of Wellman Bros, formed by my father Eric and his brother Derek, with their first advert in the Newbury Weekly News newspaper in 1948... Dad was only eighteen. The original business was mainly large timber felling for sawmills in the production of furniture and fencing products. Large timber felling is a very specialised profession and Wellman Bros were a much sought-after partnership."
This video was filmed in January 2018, on site in Frilsham. It shows the various stages of sectionally removing a Horse Chestnut tree that sadly had to be removed in order to make way for the construction of some new buildings.
