I aim to provide sustainable solutions to your tree management problems – always with a pragmatic, collaborative approach and always being mindful of the benefits that are provided by trees.

Whether you are a tree owner with responsibility for a single tree or an organisation or other professional with more complex needs I am able to assist.

I hold the highly respected ‘Level 6 Diploma in Arboriculture’ (formerly the ‘RFS Professional Diploma’) as well as the Arboricultural Association’s ‘Technicians Certificate in Arboriculture’ and the Royal Forestry Society’s ‘Certificate in Arboriculture’.  In 2017 I was awarded the LG/RFS national Award for Arboricultural Excellence for my work relating to the Level 6 qualification.  I have worked in arboriculture since the late 1990s, initially as a climbing arborist, then as a local government tree officer and latterly in private practice.

My key specialisms lie within the fields of ‘trees and planning’ and ‘tree risk management’.  However, I also have a strong professional interest and understanding of tree strategy and policy.

Please give me a call to discuss your needs – I look forward to hearing from you.
