Fully qualified for all relevant plant machinery and equipment, and with over 20 years of experience, there's not much Paul doesn't know about the business of maintaining and felling trees.
For Paul, it all began when he broke away from laboring work in his early 20's.
Paul responded to an ad in the local paper seeking a hardworking person with chainsaw experience to work with a tree felling company.
Hardworking Paul was, and he did grow up cutting firewood with a chainsaw, so he had experience... but he wasn't an arborist.
However, nothing takes the place of persistence and a lack of qualification didn't stop Paul from getting that job. Paul learnt quickly how to climb trees and eventually branched out on his own as a qualified tree climber.
Tree work ran throughout his families history, and now that calling had found it's way to Paul.
It's a love of the outdoors, and the mental and physical challenge that has kept Paul happily in his line of work for so many years.
Paul is now passing on his knowledge and passion for the business to his eldest son, Trent.
