Jim is a consultant arboriculturist and possesses a wealth of experience. In his early twenties, he set up his own arboricultural contracting business before working for a small arboricultural firm after relocating to the New Forest and then onto Wiltshire. Playing a significant role in growing the firm, he contributed to it achieving Arboricultural Associated Approved Contractor (ArbAC) status but opted to join Arbtech in November 2021 in search of a new challenge.
He was involved in arboriculture from a young age, working in the family business of sawmilling and contract felling, and even climbing trees at the age of 14 to assist with certain services. Jim is now based in Wiltshire and spends his spare time outdoors with his family and dogs. He also enjoys woodcarving and aspires to return to his passion of coaching boxing.
