trees and wood has been a family tradition for four
generations. In the early 1900’s, Great-Grandfather Frank
Annetts worked in Winterslow, Wiltshire before moving his
family and business to Shirley, Surrey. Grandfather, Chris
Annetts, continued in the wood brokerage business and enjoyed
carpentry and woodturning in his spare time. Father, Chris,
has extensive knowledge and a great love of fruit trees and
organic growing. He also ran a garden ideas and design company
for many years and brings invaluable experience and expertise.
The present generation

with the National Diploma in Arboriculture at Merrist Wood
Agricultural College near Guildford in Surrey. Since then has
gained many years personal experience in France and Germany,
Canada (West Coast) Australia and New Zealand, London and the
South East and home to his roots in Kent.
