More about Gareth Tudor-Jones
Gareth's "tree career" started in the pine and eucalyptus plantations of South Africa where he worked as a qualified Forester for over 10 years. On various plantations in the Western Cape, he managed harvesting and silvicultural operations, as wells as leading various conservation projects and fire protection activities. Gareth and his family immigrated to Canada in 2001. It was at this stage that Gareth decided to enter into the world of Arboriculture, and was immediately swept up by the challenges and excitement that the industry offered. His growth and passion for tree climbing resulted in four BC tree climbing championship titles and two Pacific North West titles - after which he went on to compete twice at the International tree climbing championships. Gareth's various work credentials include: ISA certified arborist, BC certified Tree Faller, ISA certified tree worker, ISA certified tree risk assessor, TCIA certified tree safety professional. Gareth is currently the Safety and Training coordinator for Bartlett operations in Canada.
