I have worked in the arboricultural industry since 1998 and had a variety of roles in the public sector, before becoming self employed and setting up Broadway Tree Consultancy in September 2006.
My role at Caerphilly County Borough Council was that of Assistant Tree Officer and responsible for the countywide tree survey of all council owned trees.
I have taught as an arboricultural lecturer at Merrist Wood College, Guildford, and focused mainly on tree law, trees on development sites and tree pests, diseases and disorders.
With Cardiff County Council I was a Tree Preservation Officer and dealt exclusively with Tree Preservation Order applications and planning applications (trees on development sites).
At Newport City Council I was an Arboricultural Officer and oversaw all aspects of surveying and caring for the Council's tree stock.
In addition to my consultancy work I have been a lecturer in arboriculture at Bridgwater College Cannington Campus, and Coleg Gwent, Usk Campus.
