My career began “on the tools” with the tree gang in Ealing in 1980. Senior roles in the public, charity and commercial sectors followed and in October 2011 I became an independent consultant offering advice on a broad range of topics to a wide customer base, from the private householder to multi-site, multi-function support service providers.
Instructions, at all scales and in all sectors, have ranged from individual tree inspections to enterprise wide tree surveys, hazard assessments, health and safety advice, the preparation of tender documents and arboricultural method statements, development site tree surveys and assessments, lecturing to arboricultural students and the preparation of management strategies.
I am a forestry graduate from Bangor, and have been a Fellow Member of the Arboricultural Association since 1994.
