About Us

My name is Chris and I have worked in the forestry for a number of years - too many to mention.

Having used a cable choker system could not understand why they were not readily available in the UK. This was the start of Chris Forestry Ltd.  Together with my wife Sue we have continued to increase our range of products to include items that we have previously found difficult to source for my own use, and at an affordable price.


In 1972 Wallingford's Inc invented an easy to use, low cost conversion from chain choker systems to cable choker systems, J1 choker, allowing for increased productivity in New England as smaller diameter soft wood became more prevalent. In time this gave rise to the development of the two button choker and slider combination, an evolution specific to the forestry industry. Components developed to be strong and durable whilst sympathetic to their fellow components, and also user friendly.
