B.Sc. (forestry) M.For.Sci. Ph.D. Cert.Ed. M.Arbor.A.
I am a professional member of the Arboricultural Association and conform to the Association’s guidelines for professional practice.
I have professional indemnity insurance to the level recommended by the Arboricultural Association and am insured for all aspects of tree advisory work, including reports on trees in relation to building subsidence and tree hazard assessment.
I sometimes employ sub-contractors including tree surgeons, landscape contractors and wildlife specialists, or call on geotechnical and laboratory services, as appropriate. These are invariably independent to avoid a conflict of interest.
My background is in forestry and plant propagation, and I have special interests in education, research and the culture of top fruit varieties (apples, pears, plums and cherries).
