Christopher Spratt

Chris is a certified arborist. After completing his horticultural qualifications in 2004 he started his career in the industry working as a supervisor for a large grounds maintenance contractor in Hampshire.


Upon gaining a solid foundation of experience Chris soon realised that his main passion rested in the care and maintenance of trees, so decided to focus his skills on arboriculture and returned to college to complete his chainsaw qualifications.


Since then Chris has progressed to work in aerial tree operations, having been employed as team leader for a professional tree surgery company, which has allowed him to gain the necessary experience and develop his climbing skills further.
