Tree Surveys & Advice
When trees and the requirements of people meet, a conflict can arise between the positive attributes of trees and the real or perceived damage that they may cause to people or property.
Our Arboricultural consultant John Gillbert is in a unique position to try and strike a balance between the requirements of trees and people. John has five years experience as a quantity surveyor in the construction industry and twelve years as a tree surgery contractor. Since 2001 John has concentrated on Arboricultural consultancy and no longer wields a chainsaw but advises full time in the following areas:
