About Scott Raney

S. Raney Tree Services is a small tree-surgery business formed in February 2012. All my staff are trained to the highest professional standards and carry out all work to BS 3998:2010. We particularly pride ourselves on our care and upkeep of trees across the Norwich, Norfolk and East Anglian region.

Prior to starting S. Raney Tree Services, I worked for Norwich City Council for seven years, gaining a vast amount of experience and knowledge within the fields of horticulture and arboriculture. I continue to work closely with local councils and tree officers.
