Honey Brothers Ltd is the leading supplier of equipment and advice for any tree surgeon in the UK.

Honey Brothers Ltd has been based in Peasmarsh, UK since 1955 and was founded by two brothers, Peter and Tony Honey. At the start Honey Brothers Ltd would provide tree surgery services to the local area before turning to selling the local arborists high quality tree climbing and cutting equipment.

The company was later taken on by Peter’s sons Martyn and Michael who continued to sell equipment to the local area and across the UK whilst continuing with the tree surgery side and also consultancy. Gaining momentum and growing the Honey Brothers Ltd name, they proceeded to gain more staff and provided better service to their customers as the demand across the country grew.

The Honey family employed Martyn Day and Stuart Girdler who started by booking in lawnmowers to be repaired, delivering and collecting them and ordering parts. Martyn and Stuart then moved into the sales side of the business, gaining their knowledge on the whole Arboricultural sector including climbing equipment and chainsaws.

In 2007, Martyn saw the opportunity to be able to buy Honey Brothers Ltd. A Conversation was had between Martyn Honey, Martyn Day and Stuart Girdler and the deal was done! After Martyn and Stuart took this challenge on it has been a whirlwind ever since, making Honey Brothers known across the world.

The original shop was knocked down in 2019 ready for a fresh rebuild and new Honey Brothers superstore was opened in March 2020. The new store build gave the shop more floor space to fill with top arbor products as well as a harness climbing area complete with Arborist inspired graffiti designed by Colm Hickey from Arb Fiction. To go with the ever growing business, Honey Brothers expanded into a larger fulfillment center to be able to hold more stock and service our online customer base at the global level.
