|Twig the Wonderdog, ready for another long day.|
Prior to engaging the services of any business itís nice to know a little bit about the people behind it, so this page is my chance to do just that. Iíve always had a love of the outdoors and knew early on "that was the life for me", so from 2000--2002 I studied at Cannington College to gain my National Certificate in Horticulture and Arboriculture qualifications. From 2002 to 2006 I worked for the Forestry Commission and The National Arboretum at Westonbirt where I was gained experience and further training from some of the best in the business.
|Having obtained the necessary training and experience, in 2006 I decided to start my own business, trading under my name J R Williams. Now, we are a team who work to one simple guiding principle: be professional and do a great job for a fair price. So far it has served us well.|
Growing up in rural Essex, I seemed to spend every spare minute working on my Grandparentsí Smallholding, where I learnt the skills needed to understand how to care for the Land and environment. Iíve always been interested in land management and other outdoor pursuits, enjoying many weekends away mountain biking, visiting agricultural shows and supporting local community projects.
|At the age of 18, I found myself relocating to Bristol in order to study at University and after meeting my soon to be wife, I decided to remain in the West Country. For a number of years, I worked in Finance but my aspiration to be working out in the natural environment never faded, which led me to return to college ago to retrain for a career in Arboriculture. I have since gained NPTC qualifications and have rediscovered my passion for life outdoors, especially climbing trees and I have never looked back (even on the coldest of winter days!).|
