About Us

Welcome to Henham Bees & Trees

We are a family run business serving Essex, Suffolk and Norfolk

We are registered Beekeepers and fully qualified and insured Tree Surgeons. We also carry out volunteer work for the Woodland Trust as part of our drive to help preserve England’s natural heritage. We are constantly expanding our knowledge of Bees and Trees, by taking courses and reading the latest publications.

We are committed to providing an affordable, professional and timely service, ensuring health, safety, quality and respecting the environment every step of the way.

Henham Bees & Trees offer a FREE visit to assess your requirements and offer professional advice to best suit your needs accompanied by a FREE comprehensive no obligation written quotation.

We own an ever increasing number of bee hives which are sited in various locations in Suffolk. The honey flavours produced depend wholly on the plants in season in the locality to where the hives are sited. Once the honey has been harvested we are able to put to good use the remaining comb and wax, producing a range of natural products and gifts, nothing goes to waste!

Pollination by bees is important for genetic sustainability. Without bees, there would be no more pollination, no more plants and no more animals.

“Bees are Good for Trees and Trees are Good for Bees”

We provide a swarm collection service (Council recommended). Click on the link at the top of the page for further details. It is vitally important not to destroy our bee population as their numbers are declining. If the bees have to be removed they will always be re-homed. However, if you are comfortable living alongside your new found neighbours we can provide information and advice.

Henham Bees & Trees also offers an additional service of Aerial Pet Rescue, so if your cat is stuck up a tree and refusing to come down, we can help, just give us a call.
