ABOUT

Biography

Nigel and Angie found each other in 2016 and it was all about trees from the beginning. Its why they grow stronger together. With Angie’s love of the Carpathian forests, expertise in “leave no trace” experiences and her ideals in coexisting with nature, meeting Nigel with 30 years’ experience in forestry & arboriculture and a degree in environmental sciences is where their journey began.

The revelation came after being so fraught by the natural world being constantly degraded by human activities such as deforestation and development, understanding that neglecting to manage the environment can be just as harmful to the most diverse and species populated habitat.

Without our management many habitats will eventually disappear. Grasslands scrub over and eventually become overcrowded woodland, so the most diverse of habitats are not this final stage. The most species diverse are ‘successional’ habitat and therefore, without disturbance of coppicing and thinning for example, they will eventually disappear and become full canopy deciduous woodland. Without management a closed canopy can leave the ground flora bare without layers and light, or be taken over by invasive plants like Rhododendron ponticum for example.

An intermediate amount of disturbance is key to the most naturally populated habitat. We will always encourage management than clearance and any clearance will be sympathetic to the surrounding environment. We believe your enjoyment of the outdoors greatly relies upon the biodiversity. You are our client, wildlife our companions. Our guardianship is key. .
