New Team Member

The Butler’s team gains a new member. 


Scott Butler, fifth-generation, now officially joins the team at G A Butler & Sons Ltd, or as they’re often known ‘BUTLERS…the tree people’.

For over 100yrs the Butler family has been in the tree business. It has been said that Harry, Ray, Graham, Luke, Stephen & Matthew Butler (Great-great granddad, Great Granddad, Granddad, Dad and Uncles) have sap and chainsaw oil in their veins. This can also be said about Scott, who for the last 16yrs has been itching to get stuck into the day to day activities of the family business. 

As a small boy, he would visit the site with his Mum to see what everyone was up to. When he was old enough to go with Granddad when surveying and quoting jobs, he would be keen to go and spend a day visiting clients. Then as a young teenager, he would come out on-site to be involved, playing his part in a team as often as he could. These early years helped shape Scott into the young man he now is and set him in good stead for a long and successful career in arboriculture.  In September Scott will start his official training at Sparsholt College. It will be a one day a week apprenticeship scheme, with on the job training and experience.

This is part of what makes ‘BUTLERS…the tree people’ stand out from the crowd. Scott and his brothers and cousins (yes, there are a lot of Butler boys!) are in a great position to build on the skills, experience, reputation and hard work of previous generations.

Scott has made a great addition to our team and we are looking forward to seeing how his skills progress!
