The large landowner/manager requiring tree safety inspections:

"Chris Simpson tendered for a 3 year contract for tree inspections within Tay Forest District in 2012. His submission was very professional and extremely competitive, which ensured that he got the work. From the very start Chris approached this with a refreshingly professional attitude, making sure that he fully understood all of the clients’ needs, whilst also suggesting ways in which the data could better be recorded and submitted.

The concerned private tree owner:

"I commissioned a complete survey of all the trees in the garden. Chris spent a morning , carefully mapping and assessing all the 8 listed & tagged trees before preparing a major report, to be submitted to the East Lothian Council for permission to fell or trim back as necessary, in order to meet my duty of care. He completed a full Visual Tree Assessment from ground level, then a Picus Tomograph of the badly damaged old beech, in order to gauge its health and prospects. The resulting Report also indicated all the remedial work required." Fiona E.Tennick
