Our Staff

Managing Director

Hugo’s passion for tree planting and related design is deep rooted and relates to his extensive career that started with forestry with his grandfather as a teenager in Holland. Having found a vocation at an early career stage, he continued by following a successful intensive Arboricultural Profession as an advanced tree climber, multi discipline project manager, tree relocation expert and eventually Consultant. Currently leading a team of 15, he leads the consulting and design teams and now surveys and reports on tree health and safety, pre and post development planning and of course designing of tree schemes.
