Our Team

Jon Hartley

Jon is an arboriculturist and joined Arbtech as our first hire of 2014. Arriving back to live in Kent from Australia, Jon only worked for Arbtech as a freelancer undertaking tree surveys for a few months, before we both realised that he was the right fit for the business.

Joining us from his role at Brisbane based Arbor Operations, where he worked from 2008 until mid 2013 as a senior consulting arborist, Jon brings to Arbtech a wealth of knowledge about tree management and development from two continents.

Prior to that, he worked variously around the south of England for several well known tree contractors, including County Tree Surgeons, as a senior foreman. Jon holds the Arboricultural Association’s Technician’s Certificate in Arboriculture, The Royal Forestry Society Certificate of Arboriculture, has passed the rigorous LANTRA Professional Tree Inspection course, and has graduated from the University of Central Lancashire’s FDSc in Arboriculture. (The final two years of his degree were paid for through Arbtech’s unlimited CPD budget – the most generous in the industry.) He’s now in the final year of the BSc-top up, again, funded by Arbtech.

Jon has been with us 4 years.

Robert Oates, director says:

I didn’t interview Jon. In fact, I hadn’t even spoken to him before I decided to offer him a job. Both Matt and Alan raved about him so much during the couple or three months that he worked for us as a sub-contractor, that when we realised we had the sustained demand required to expand the in house team again, he seemed like the perfect fit. To date, he’s shown himself to be nothing short of exceptional.
