Our Team

Matt Edwards

Matt moved into arboriculture and ecology with Arbtech having spent his career previously as a self-employed tree climber for local tree contractors around Nottingham and Leicestershire. Prior to joining Arbtech, he studied for an Environmental Conservation BSc at Nottingham Trent University.

Matt is based in the Midlands. However, he can be found carrying out a range of ecological and arboricultural surveys all around the country, including BS5837 tree surveys and Preliminary Bat Roost Assessments. In his spare time, Matt enjoys walks with his boxer-dog, Kye, as well as mountain biking to keep fit.

Matt has worked at Arbtech for 2 years.

Robert Oates, managing director says:

Matt is a super-star. When we took him on, he was the second candidate in our “hybrid experiment”. It’s not as sinister as it sounds, actually. It just means he was concurrently trained in arboricultural consultancy, as well as ecology and protected species surveys. This took a long time, but the wait was worth it. Matt is one of the very few people in the UK that can save clients buckets of cash, by going to a site to undertake a BS5837 survey, at the same time as a preliminary ecological appraisal and a bat survey.. all in one hit. He’s also a really fun bloke to have around on socials… especially when the dance moves come out. I can’t wait to see Matt develop and prosper at Arbtech, which I hope will be his home for a long time to come.
