Alan Randall joined The Blue Tree Company in January 2016 to support the company’s growth and to introduce a range of additional client services based on his expertise and experience.
With more that 12 years’ experience in the arboriculture industry Alan brings a wealth of skills and knowledge to the Blue Tree team, ranging from forestry to topiary. Alan is committed to delivering tree management to the highest quality. He has worked across Hertfordshire as a successful arborist while developing his skills to the highest level.
Alan’s other priority is customer service. He believes strongly in good communications and a job well done, leaving behind sites that delight his customers and that he can take pride in. This is the ethos he applies to motivate others, ensuring the absolute best from both himself and the team.
In addition to ‘regular’ tree management Alan leads our consulting activities. Over the last few years he has branched out into the world of tree surveying and gained significant experience consulting for local authorities and commercial organisations.
Alan will manage client work on tree safety, mortgage reports, planning matters, regulations, subsidence investigations and planting advice. Alan is trained in Visual Tree assessment and is able to do reports on single or multiple trees. He is fully trained in the use of the Arbortrack™ – a GPS-linked geographic information system that eases the task of integrating and coordinating the management of individual and groups of trees. It’s an excellent tool that supports the entire process of tree management from initial survey to maintenance and removal. His experience in all consulting and surveying matters will be a valuable asset to the Blue Tree Company as we expand over the next few years.
Alan has been fascinated by trees from a very young age, always curious about how things grow and wanting to learn about the scientific processes within living organisms. It is through his work as an arborist that this interest extended into the bio-mechanics of trees and wood decay fungi. A member of the Mycology Society and Arboricultural Association, Alan reads extensively on this subject in order to keep up to date with the latest research. Drawing upon valuable practical experience and the theoretical knowledge surrounding arboriculture, he guarantees that customers receive the best advice possible.
Alan is dedicated to the continual professional development of all the arborists within the Blue Tree family and so ensures that he shares this knowledge with the team when out in the field. His passion for arboriculture and deep understanding of the natural world will make a strong contribution towards maintaining The Blue Tree Company’s strong ecological values.
