Sussex Tree Works Team

The team has worked together for several years, so we are not only co-workers, we are also friends. Having honed our skills together over a number of years, we have developed efficient and effective working methods, using the most modern techniques and knowledge in Arboriculture.

Geoff Place of Sussex Tree Works


Geoff is married and has a baby daughter. Geoff grew up in rural Somerset where his work on the family smallholding started his love of the countryside and his appreciation of the natural environment. Having moved to Hove, Geoff then developed a greater understanding of how trees can enhance landscapes, particularly in cities and towns. He has continued his professional development by attending various tree inspection courses and is qualified to undertake tree safety surveys using the ‘Quantified Tree Risk Assessment’ method. (QTRA)
