Stephen has an avid love of the outdoors, trees, forests, and the natural wonderland of his native homeland New Zealand. This led him to start a career in one of New Zealand's largest industries, forestry. After working in forestry for five years, Stephen turned his interests to arboriculture. He wanted to become more involved in the preservation and long term care of trees. As a bonus, the arboricultural industry provides plenty of adventure!
After working in multiple countries around the world, Stephen has learned many different skills in the tree care industry. However, tree climbing is his favorite part of the job. And after 11 years of experience, he can climb and work on any tree put in front of him.
Stephen also loves to talk about trees. He enjoys discussing all the possible tree/landscape management options with clients and always performs work to the highest professional standard. He is relatable, knowledgeable, and an absolute pleasure to work with.
