Graham Butler

Managing Director

Graham enjoys overseeing the business, his 40+ years of experience mean he is still a force to be reckoned with, especially when operating his baby (vintage tractor and winch). Graham enjoys time with his family, especially the Grandchildren who can often be found following him around. He still finds time to head off out in to the night with the Lorry and Tele-handler to keep our roads clear of fallen trees.



Stephen Butler


Stephen is one of the Directors at G A Butler & Sons, he loves tree work and can be found out on site as often as in the office playing his part in managing the business. Stephen strives for a good work life balance and loves time with his family. One recent project of theirs has been restoring an old fishing boat, on which he has recently sailed to the Isle of Wight!


Luke Butler


Luke loves the part he plays in making G A Butler & Sons happen. Although a big part of his role is behind the scenes he likes nothing better than getting out with the lads on site, especially if its a big job! Life doesn’t slow down for Luke when he gets home, with a family of six and a herd of sheep on his small holding there is always something to do, just the way he likes it.
