Since starting work in Arboriculture in 1992, I have grown to appreciate the privilege of working with trees. They display such a variety of characteristics and individuality which I find constantly remarkable. I see my role as an Arborist as being an advocate for the trees, offering solutions to problems caused by co-habitation.

Arboriculture has taken me around the world with work in Scotland, Germany, U.S.A. as well as up and down NZ. I really enjoy running my own business and passing years of experience and knowledge on to customers as well as staff.

After 18 years working with trees, I continue to gain satisfaction from this career. My initial experiences in forestry in Nelson provided a stepping stone from which I progressed into Arboriculture in London. Here I learnt the practical skills required for tree preservation and maintenance in a city setting.

Since returning to the Garden City, it has been great to join forces with Mark. I enjoy working alongside clients, discussing trees and the way they interact with their environment. It is my goal to provide practical solution to real problems.
