I am Derek Matheson Proprietor of Stars Tree Surgeons Gatwick. I first started my own tree surgery business in 1982 in the costal town of South Shields in the north east of England. We enjoyed a successful business with many long term customers both commercial and domestic. I obtained my qualifications at the world renowned Houghall Community College in east Durham.
I married a local girl from Charlwood in 2008 and relinquished control of the business in South Shields and started 'branching out'! I relocated to Charlwood, Surrey and started 'Stars Tree Surgeons Gatwick'. After working with me for a number of years; my nephew has taken control of the business in South Shields which continues to grow from strength to strength.
I am now facing the challenge of introducing myself and new business to the people of the south of England. Although a recession is not the best time to relocate and start a new business I am confident that the high quality of our workmanship will see Stars Tree Surgeons Gatwick in good stead and eagerly look forward to the challenges ahead!
