About Us


GoodFellers is a local Canterbury based company started by Phil.  The GoodFellers team all pride themselves on the professional service they offer to their customers.

Phil worked with a locally based company before he trained at Merrist Wood College in 2001, one of the most highly regarded training colleges in the UK.

Phil has travelled to Australia working as a tree surgeon on some of the largest tree species in the world, becoming highly proficient in very complex aspects of the trade.

GoodFellers was established in 2002. Since then, the company has built up an excellent reputation for delivering a high standard quality of tree work and we have continued to grow from strength to strength into the professional and successful business it is today.

We undertake all aspects of tree work. From large and difficult tree removals to hedge cutting, land clearing, stump grinding and log deliveries. We do work for both commercial and domestic. We have all the relevant qualifications and public liability insurance for damages up to £5 million. Quality of work is our priority and customer satisfaction is a product of this.

All of our customers are valued and no job is too big or small.

Customer Testimonials

Goodfellers live up to their name: good fellers! Excellent!

Goodfellers have just completed some tree surgery work for us in Canterbury and we are delighted! Phil demonstrated his expert knowledge when he first came round. He arrived with his team on the day as promised, and carried out the work efficiently, with expertise and courtesy — tidying up all the debris before they left. I would strongly recommend them.

Highly recommended, I would not hesitate to highly recommend Goodfellers Tree Surgeons. In my experience, they are honest, reliable and skilled in their work. Phil offered good advice on the tree I needed pruning, and his skilled work left me knowing I had chosen the right people for the job. The shape of a Himalayan Birch can be ruined very easily if pruned incorrectly, but Phil managed to reduce the height of the tree maintaining a perfect shape.
