The Founder, Michael Riddy

I have always had a passion for trees and wildlife. I completed a two year BTEC National Diploma in Forestry and Arboriculture and the basic NPTC at Merrist Woods, Guilford College. Subsequently, I was employed by one of the largest companies in the UK and worked all over London including the Boroughs of Chelsea, Lambeth, Wandsworth, Camden and Islington councils, The Royal Parks and The Mall, Working on the Massaria Aerial Survey Removal Program, various private contracts and domestic work.

I am environmentally conscious and will always try to preserve trees wherever possible and have created this ethos within my company.

Please refer to the pests and diseases  section for information on local epidemics and outbreaks of various fungi and insects in London.

If you are unsure about any Tree Preservation Orders (TPOs) which may be in effect or if your property falls within a Conservation Area, we are happy to liaise with your local authority to establish the status of the trees in question and submit the planning application free on your behalf.
