I am a tree enthusiast and arborist with a desire to provide quality and pragmatic tree advice. I have worked hard over the last 15 years to build on my knowledge of trees, the landscape and construction methods so that I can help achieve the aims of construction projects – a sustainable co-existence between the built environment and the natural one.
I worked as a photographer in my early life and it was the urban and natural landscape that inspired me to change career so I could work in the environment at a deeper level. Since re-training, in 2002, I have worked as a woodland volunteer, landscaper, tree surgeon, private consultant, council tree officer and now, independent tree consultant.
I work with private homeowners, small and large scale developers, schools, architects, planning and environmental consultancies, utility companies, rail companies, parish councils and other Government organisations. I also have associate working relationships with two tree consultants so if workloads are high I can still survey your trees swiftly by calling upon help that I trust and value. They are Andrew Mcewan, based near Hemel Hempstead and Jeremy Sacha based near Banbury. Both are highly professional individuals that I can recommend whole heartedly.
I aim to bring my knowledge of realistic construction requirements and trees to your development so that your project can proceed without tree related delays.
