Our Team

Matthew Middle

Matt is an arboriculturist and provides clients like you with high level planning advice relating to trees, for example with Arboricultural Impact Assessments, Method Statements and Tree Protection Plans. He works from both our offices and from home, depending upon the demands of each project and client.

Joining Arbtech from a period of self-employment, he has always been fascinated by trees and nature. Formerly a surveyor at arboricultural consultancy, Simon Jones Associates, and thereafter at Thomson Ecology, his experience is broad and his knowledge of tree and planning is second to none.

He has personally led work on a range of projects at Arbtech, from small house extensions that require simplistic tree surveys and minimal input, to much larger, more complex developments, such as schools, or sites for volume house builders, like retained clients Elan Homes and Redrow Homes.

Matt has been with us 6 years.

Robert Oates, director says:

Like most here, I interviewed Matt over a coffee at King Cross St Pancras Station. Within minutes of sitting down, it was obvious he was a guy of integrity and humour. Those qualities are number one and two on our list, so coupled with the fact he is expert on matters of BS5837 and planning made picking him for the team a quick decision. Matt is great if you have complex issues that relate to trees; such building in or near root protection areas, or mortgage approval for sites with large trees in proximity to the property/asset against which your mortgage is secured.
