ACCREDITATIONS

Our Group of Companies

Our group of companies cover a large range of activities across the Land Based industry sector. Along side specific land based work, ancillary companies have evolved to compliment and improve the service that TFN Landscapes provides.

Established in 1994 to service the Grounds Maintenance requirements of local authorities, Housing Associations, Corporate clients etc. from its modern purpose built 20 acre site in Worcestershire.

Seen as a slight diversification from our core business, Smart Trees grew around the 15 acre Christmas Tree plantation originally planted by Smart Cut Ltd over 20 years ago at its HQ in Worcestershire. During a quiet period for Grounds Maintenance an opportunity was seen to both keep staff employed and give something back to the local community. 17 years later Smart Trees is now a well known Christmas destination in the West Midlands visited by thousands every year.

Originally created for the specific Land based training needs within Smart Cut & TFN Landscapes; it became very apparent there was a huge gap in the market for a stand alone land based training business. Training Smart now regularly hosts a variety of training courses for Landscaping companies from all over the UK, at its state of the art training facilities in both Worcestershire & Gloucestershire.

Setup to Act solely as the ‘Groups’ vehicle leasing company, Lease Smart now maintains a fleet of over 50+ vehicles across the group.
