Who We Are
Founded in early 2015, Thor’s Trees are an exceptional multi-award winning tree care service covering North London and the surrounding areas. It succeeds in bringing together the businesses vast experience and in-depth knowledge, with a friendly and personal approach.
There is no doubt that founder Lawrence-Thor Stephen strived to become an expert in his field. After completing a Forestry and Arboricultural course more than seven years ago, he started working as a tree surgeon for a local company. Two years on, he was recruited by one of the largest companies in Europe. He became one of their top climbers and was deployed to work on projects all over the UK. It was here that he continued to perfect his trade, before acting on his dream of creating a market-leading tree care service.
A strong work ethic paired with a drive to succeed, meant that just two years later, Thor’s Trees now employs a team of seven highly skilled staff. The business continues to grow from strength to strength.
Blending state-of-the-art modern techniques with traditional ones, each and every job is handled with the utmost precision and care. From the initial consultation through to completion and follow-up, the entire process is carried out seamlessly. Delivering outstanding customer service, the team are on-hand with expert advice throughout the project, as well as afterwards.
Taking on projects of all sizes, Thor’s Trees offers a wide range of services across tree surgery maintenance, tree felling and removal. The team work with a variety of clients from domestic, through to private and public sector partners, including estate agents, property management, planning development firms, and local schools.
Believing in always going that extra mile for clients, Thor’s Trees aims to provide added value every time. That’s just one of the reasons why clients keep coming back.

“I don't know why we didn't get Lawrence's team in sooner, the difference their work has made to my back garden is incredible. I'd definitely recommend them, they worked really quickly and are a bunch of nice lads who know their stuff.”
“It has been a pleasure to deal with Lawrence and his team at Thor’s Trees. They are an excellent company and tick all the boxes - punctual, friendly, helpful, hard working, tidy and really nice people. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend them and use them again myself in the future. Thank you.”
“ We recently introduced several customers to Thor’s Trees and wanted to write you this Testimonial to let you know how happy ALL of the customers were. Every single one called or emailed us to say that not only was your work of a very high standard but you and your team were a pleasure to deal with. We will not hesitate to pass you onto any of our other customers who require a tree surgeon.”
I contacted Lawrence to look at the large Eucalyptus tree in our front garden which he attended our home to inspect and offer his advice.
He inspected the tree and confirmed that the tree is sadly suffering with disease and recommend that it be reduced in size at the very minimum to prevent a situation where this tree could cause damage to the house and neighbours due to lack of strength.
Lawrence quoted me on-site and booked the job in shortly afterwards. He attended with his team and carried out the job with minimal fuss and left our property in a very clean and tidy manner.
Overall, I have to say I was very impressed with how professional Lawrence was in arranging our tree works from start to finish.
I would have no hesitation in recommending Lawrence-Thor and he will soon be carrying out further works for Central Housing Group managed properties.
Many thanks to you and your team.
"First class service! I phoned to get a quote to reduce the height of a large conifer in my garden. Because Lawrence happened to be in the area I had the quote within 15 minutes and the work was carried out the following afternoon by Louis and Jaye who did a really professional job. A really lovely team of guys. If you need any tree work carried out I guarantee you won't find better than Lawrence and his team."
