Based in South East England and formed in 2015 by Boyd Saunders
With over 17 years experience of working within the arboricultural industry, our advice has a firm foundation on practical experience backed up by continued professional development and training to a high level.
Beginning his career in arboriculture as a tree surgeon/climber, Boyd has been using the 'VTA' technique of tree assessment every single day for the past sixteen years. Boyd progressed until he was a director / co owner of A Cut Above Tree Services Ltd, a successful contracting company in the North West Kent area and proud member of theMedway Fair Trader Scheme.
As the tree surgery company grew, his role changed from a practical craftsman to managerial/consultancy. This meant assessing trees and giving advice to local authorities and organisations such as Kent Wildlife Trust, Chatham Historic Dockyard, Rochester Cathedral, JC Decaux, along with local Churches and Housing Associations.
