Julian Mitchell BSc (Hons), RFS Cert Arb.  Julian oversees the running of the business, but can still be seen frequently dangling from a tree to keep his hand in.  He visits clients and prepares quotes, climbs trees and likes to buy shiny new things. A teapot can be sniffed out from over 3 miles away.

As well as doing tree stuff he also has qualified in a few other things. He has got LANTRA Professional Tree Inspection, LOLER Thorough Inspection, Chapter 8 Supervisor and IOSH Managing Safely in the bag. 



Jacqui Mitchell MA (Cantab), MBA (Open). Jacqui (alias 'Control') runs the office, sorting the diary and making sure that the tree team has everything they need to work properly.  She is also chief book keeper, Personnel Manager, council liaison officer and mum. Yes, we are scared of her! 



Jay Gibbins did his apprenticeship with us which feels so long ago now. He will climb pretty well anything unless his beard gets in the way and always has a smile on his face, even when the weather is rubbish. Jay is also a dab hand at fixing his Land Rover which is rather fortunate considering.

   Fran Smith joined us in 2019. Having started with no experience at all she has quickly found her feet in a tree or driving our MEWP (cherry picker). Fran's other passion is perfume and she can be seen after the lunch break making us smell beautiful again. It's true to say that our vehicles have never been so fragrant.  
Jordan Gent joined us late in 2020 and has quickly become firmly part of the team. He has shown that he is highly adaptable and has done everything we have thrown at him whilst singing constantly. He is pretty handy with a camera too so check out his pictures on our Instagram page. 

Ollie Wilmot is our resident free spirit who works with us on an occasional basis. Ollie is great at all things tree and hedge related as long as his feet are somewhere near the floor. His main skills are pruning Christmas trees and lime trees but it turns out he is pretty nifty with a telescopic loader as well.


John Hicks BSc (Hons)  is an expert on all things vehicular, in particular in the art of winching. Even things that don't need winching get to be pulled around hydraulically.  Despite being somewhat the senior member of the team, he has mastered his iPhone and can even tell you what App Store means (probably).
