Competent advice is fundamentally important to tree owners meeting their duty. Studies repeatedly show trees as fundamentally important to the well-being of society, with the most benefits arising in urban areas after trees reach maturity. Ill-considered tree work risks losing tree benefits for generations. When seeking opinion or advice regarding appropriate tree management, consider if it is insured, impartial, qualified and competent. If not, it could lead to a loss of natural assets and vulnerability in the event of a claim for negligence. As an experienced practitioner, I can be trusted to advise on appropriate management options that consider the risks, costs and benefits.


I have managed many trees for diverse owners over many years through the wildest weather recorded. Clients include Government agents, local authorities, framework contractors and private estates. I have inspected trees along 5,000 km of highway verge for two of my clients alone. Whether one tree or thousands, I assist my clients in managing their valuable tree assets, and help to ensure that clients meet their duty of care, as home owners, land owners and organisations.
