About Me

 

Sunlight coming through trees in a woodland settingWhy work with me rather than a run-of-the-mill arboriculture inspection company down the road?

To start with I have over 16 years of experience in the arboriculture industry.  Initially I worked as a subbing climber before starting my own firm in 2000. Over the last couple of years I have been employed by various large contractors for some large-scale and intricate projects. This wealth of experience has provided me with exposure to the everyday challenges faced by individual climbers and management alike, as well as overcoming problems or issues.

Along the way I have also been the manager of an indoor ice-climbing facility in Central London, requiring not only skill and knowledge with ropes and safety equipment, but also serving as a client-facing instructor providing the highest level of customer service.  Secondary to this, I also climb regularly in my own spare time – something which, whilst not an official role, requires extensive knowledge of climbing equipment and techniques in order to maintain my own and any of my partners’ safety.

This breadth of experience, coupled with my official yet practical approach to health and safety, means that I am able to get the job done quickly and efficiently whilst making sure everyone involved is in good hands.  After all, we all want to go home at the end of a hard day’s work, so looking after the gear which keeps us safe and out of harm’s way on a daily basis is key to my operation.

I always strive to work in a professional manner in order to provide an outstanding level of service and support, both in consultation work and physical arboriculture.

I look forward to working with you.
