Mark “The Oak” Edward

Mark’s the founder and MD of the Special Branch. Much like the Oak tree, Mark has a wide base and has deep roots in the forest of life. He’s been standing tall around the other trees a long time and has steadily developed a wealth of experience and wisdom, which he uses to guide him and the SB team through their work.

Niall “The Hawthorn” Campbell

Niall’s a Team Leader and has responsibility for running his jobs. Having had a career in the forces before Special Branch, we know that Niall has the ability to plan his approach carefully and possesses the requisite grit and determination to see the job through safely and efficiently.

Richard “The Yew” Talbot

Richard’s the elder of our congregation and, like Niall, is a team leader. With a full career in technical design work before Special Branch, Richard brings his experience to the table in his thinking through his jobs. We especially value Richard's patient nature and his ability to join everyone together when the going gets tough.

Why use
a professional arborist? Here's why.

A tree surgeon is a qualified practitioner who has the knowledge, skills and specialist equipment to treat dying, damaged or decaying trees. because this often involves work at height with chainsaws and in potentially dangerous situations, we recommend that you seek professional advice.
