Dave moved over to New Zealand from the UK in 2017, and he began working as a contractor for Thoughtplanters three years later, taking on the role of arborist and manager. His background includes eight years in the army, after which he decided to retrain in Arboriculture.
He gained his qualifications and started working in both the private and local authority arboriculture. This experience helped Dave hone his skills as an arborist since he undertook a range of pruning, planting and tree removal, as well as habitat and ecology work.
Dave has a genuine passion for his work, and he loves meeting people from all backgrounds, sharing their knowledge to improve the industry. He works hard to get the job done. And when he’s not at work, he unwinds by spending time outside with his wife and four young daughters.
