The Company is owned by Ben Scoble. In 2011, after serving as a Royal Marine Commando, Ben enlisted on an intensive training programme where he gained NPTC certification to ensure he was qualified to work in the industry. After working for a number of AA approved contractors in Oxfordshire, where he gained further insight and skill in the industry, both commercial and domestic, Ben set up Centaur Tree Services in 2014.
Passionate about tree work and a general love for being outdoors, Ben strives to offer an excellent standard of tree work while having a genuine recycling policy of timber arisings. Although a young company Centaur is committed to maintain high tree surgery standards and is continually striving to improve the service that is provided.
Centaur has Public Liability insurance to the sum of £5 million.
All Work to BS3998
Just as all tradesmen have a National standard to work to, Tree Surgeons do too. In Arboriculture this document is BS3998 and ensures the highest possible quality of tree work adhered to by all reputable arborists, and of course Centaur!
