One of my most satisfying projects has been working with Melbourne Cricket Club on the tree management plan for Yarra Park (park around the MCG) giving the opportunity to enhance the tree population in an iconic piece of Melbourne’s open spaces.  This project now involves the maintenance of the trees through Logical Tree Management.  This illustrates the comprehensive tree management Tree Logic and Logical Tree Management can deliver on such a prominent landscape.

I enjoy working on the family home, sporting activities with the family, travelling and eating (often too much!).  I am also a long suffering Tigers fan.
