Thomas Wallis

Thomas began his career in tree surgery as a forestry volunteer for The National Trust at Dyrham Park.

Thomas' training with the Trust enabled him to gain a City and Guilds NVQ Level 2 certificate in Forestry.

Following a period of training with a tree surgeon, Thomas spent a year at Cannington College, where he gained a National Certificate in Arboriculture and his National Proficiency Test Council Certificates (NPTCs), the internationally-recognised standards regarding chainsaw use on the ground (felling) or from a rope and harness (tree surgery) and also for aerial rescue.

He went on to work for a top tree surgery company before starting The Tree Surgery in 1999.
