Our Team

Alan Thompson

Alan is an arboriculturist, having spent many years as a tree surgeon, before deciding to progress his career in professional arboriculture by joining Arbtech. Operating from Arbtech’s Chester office, he is supporting a team of people who tackle tree surveys for developments large and small. He is a full professional Member of the Arboricultural Association (MArbA).

He is regularly all over the country, and frequently works from home when drafting CAD drawings, impact assessments, and writing reports. A former London Borough of Enfield Assistant Tree Officer, he is well equipped to deal with almost any planning issue that pertains to trees; though he specialises in being about the quickest and most efficient BS5837 tree surveyor money can buy.

Alan has been with us 6 years.

Robert Oates, director says:

Alan is a really top bloke. He’s dedicated, personable and has an incredible energy about him. I can only assume his commitment is the reason he can get surveys completed and reports out to customers so quickly. Also, frequently sat a mere twenty feet or so from him in the office, I genuinely learn from him each week: sometimes it’s a random fact about an 80s hit–but mostly its stuff I never knew about trees.
