TEP Expands Tree Risk Service

Tree Risk Service

As the growing season begins, TEP adds further momentum to our expanding tree risk service via the appointment of Arboricultural Consultant Rob Jones.  Rob has spent the last 16 years in the arboricultural sector gaining vast experience in Visual Tree Assessment,  utility vegetation management and the delivery of works contracts.  His career has seen him work across the UK with several large companies and his experience includes private, local authority and commercial work.  After gaining a degree in Forest and Woodland Management his continued interest in the urban forest has led him away from commercial forestry to the management of trees in the built environment, which perfectly aligns with TEP’s core services.

Rob will join our team of Arboricultural experts and be based in the northwest of England.  He will initially support the delivery of our Homes England Estates Management Services, proactively managing and safeguarding Homes England’s land assets, including its trees. This will involve Rob managing the workflow of rolling a tree inspection regime out across a very large and diverse portfolio of sites, as well as liaising with sub-contractors and handling stakeholder enquiries.

Rob also will be charged with marketing the use of our pioneering tree risk management software, Tree Plotter Risk.  TEP adopted Tree Plotter into our normal service offering back in 2020 and it has revolutionised how we map, process and communicate survey data to our clients and colleagues. The use of interactive online maps presents tree survey results and recommendations spatially, in a simple format that is suitable for interpretation by non-expert users.  For more information on this service or to discuss a bespoke solution to your tree management needs, please get in touch with Rob at arboriculture@tep.uk.com.
