The Company

Green-tree is a trading style of leading landscape suppliers, Green-tech. For over 21 years Green-tech has supplied landscape, grounds maintenance, forestry and agriculture markets with innovative products that protect, enhance and improve plants and their environment.



Formed in 1994 by the current owners Richard and Rachel Kay, Green-tech started life supplying the Yorkshire golf course market with essential maintenance products. The business quickly developed with demand increasing for a broader product range and expansion into other related markets such as forestry, landscape and amenity. At this point Richard and Rachel employed 5 people and operated out of a small garage, a far cry from the 50 plus strong team that can be seen in Arkendale, Knaresborough today.



Operating within the landscaping industry, Green-tech is aware of the importance of the impact of business on the environment. Green-tech’s own-brand Green Tree Topsoil is manufactured using organic compost and overburdened sand from quarries, all products which would otherwise hit landfill. The product is of such a high quality and promotes sustainability that it is a renowned Green Apple award winner and is used on many high-profile construction sites across the UK



Green-tree topsoil is currently supplied from 14 production sites across the UK, with more sites currently at planning stage for 2016. Sites are located in close proximity to the UK motorway network and positioned to receive a ready supply of the recycled components that make up Green-tree topsoil. Green-tree now has a soil finishing facility based at its head office in Arkendale, this allows the team to conduct extensive quality checks and react to project needs and requirements.
