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.

I have been working in the arboriculture industry since 1996. I continue to gain satisfaction from this career. My initial experiences in forestry in Nelson provided a great platform from which I progressed into arboriculture in London. There I learnt the practical skills required for tree preservation and maintenance in a city setting.
I enjoy working alongside clients, discussing trees and the way they interact with their environment. It is challenging but rewarding being able to solve our client’s tree-related problems. It is great running the business and watching it grow. We have a great team of staff and it is rewarding for us to employ local people and pass on our knowledge and training so they can represent our business out in the community.
