Passionate about trees

Richard Ravencroft
MD & Senior Consultant

BSc.(Hons)Arb.  M.Arbor.A. MICFor. ISA Certified Arborist.

Practical experience: Richards initial background in Horticulture led to a developing interest in tree care and management during which time we undertook a variety of challenging and prestigious projects, ranging from individual garden tree management to large sites and estate management, with a special focus on conservation and management of ancient / veteran trees.

As a company we retained Arboricultural Approved Contractors status until 2023 at which time we shifted our business emphasis to concentrate on our ever-developing Consultancy Practice, which has been operating for the past sixteen years in which Richard and colleagues continue to provide a full suite of arboricultural consultancy services.

Richard’s specialism is undertaking tree condition and tree hazard risk inspections for private individuals and large estates and the conservation and management of ancient / veteran trees.

Also acting as an expert witness in relation to injury or damage claims and boundary tree / hedge disputes.
