Andy started working as a contractor for Thoughtplanters way back when it was still called Horttraining. His experience in the industry includes all aspects of arboriculture and during his 20+ years as an arborist, he has worked in the UK, Canada and Asia. Andy holds a New Zealand level 4 advanced qualification and an ISA certification. Today, he operates his own arboriculture business in the Bay of Plenty.
As a professional arborist and tutor, Andy enjoys sharing his knowledge with others, helping them to work safer in the industry and look after trees better. When he's not busy working, he also likes to spend time surfing and fishing.
