Joan Garnham does not climb trees! Joan is the administrator and general factotum. She will probably be your first point of contact on the telephone or e mail. She has had many years’ experience running companies but got involved with trees when she met and married Alan in 2005. She is now often a judge for the UK Logging Championships. The competition measures speed, accuracy, precision and safety.
Nicholas Wells A good all round and reliable member of the team of over two years. He is next in line to be the main rigger and groundsman for our climbers.
Andrew Greenfield Andrew recently joined the team and is a budding climber. After qualifying he is a speed demon in getting around the tree.
Joshua Davy is our youngest member of the team and is proving to be a good all-rounder and reliable. Heavy lifting and plenty of stamina is key in our line of work and Joshua has an abundance of these qualities.
