Tony’s legacy - a history of Parkwood

Glendale Industries Ltd was originally registered by founder, Tony Hewitt, in 1985 as a forestry, tree harvesting and consultancy business. The company progressed into amenity, horticulture and arboriculture following the Local Government Act 1988 which allowed private firms to bid for the provision of council services.
