Principal Consultant Jon Coe has worked in arboriculture for 16 years. Initially employed as a climbing arborist, he embarked in 2009 on a BSc in Arboriculture at Myerscough College, qualifying with a first-class degree prior to turning his business focus to consultancy.
Jon is a professional member of the Arboricultural Association and an Associate of the Institute of Chartered Foresters, with whom he aspires to chartered status. As such he adheres to both those organisations’ codes of conduct and ethics, maintaining his independence, impartiality and integrity at all times.
In his early years as a climbing arborist, Jon was fortunate to work on many of the largest, oldest and most notable trees in the Derbyshire and South Yorkshire region. His background in hands-on tree work enables report recommendations that are rooted in an awareness of practicality and cost. A strong commitment to professional development ensures that these recommendations also reflect the most up-to-date knowledge, research and training.
Jon has built the business on the basis of providing the highest standards of service, personalised to the particular requirements of the project and the client. He has formed trusted working relationships with many repeat clients who include homeowners and schools, architects, planning consultants, major landowning bodies and significant national charities.
At Jon Coe Tree Consultancy we are sensitive to the pressured timescales that our clients often face, and pride ourselves on our ability to offer a quick turn-around.
Our pricing structure is transparent, and all costs are agreed with clients in advance of any work taking place.
Our practise has a strong ethical foundation. We take our professional responsibility to our clients very seriously, always acting in their best interest, while maintaining independence, honesty and integrity in all of our assessments and communications.
At the same time, we are acutely aware of our responsibility to the environment we live and work in. We have regard for sustainability throughout our work, and for the considerable benefits that trees bring to the landscape, environment and human wellbeing. This has never been more important, with our planet facing the huge problems of climate change and the mass loss of biodiversity.
With the UK’s growing population and the unresolved housing crisis and consequent pressure to build, retention of each and every tree is not realistic. Working within the much larger framework of planning policy and law, our role as arboriculturists is to help in achieving a sustainable balance of trees, people and the built environment – to the benefit of all.
