With more than 45 years’ experience in all aspects of the industry, from nursery growing through to planting, landscaping, aftercare, and tree surgery, Jon has spent his entire career fulfilling a passion he has had since childhood: to work with trees.
“My honest belief is that trees are important in society. Not just in the workplace, or for their environmental benefits, but in terms of the everyday wellbeing they help to engender.”
– Jon Todd.
Today he utilises that experience daily in the nursery he founded 30 years ago. His unrivalled technical knowledge brings the very best production techniques to work in producing the highest quality products for our clients. His worldwide market knowledge and industry contacts, built up during his long career, allow us to procure the very best specimens. Meanwhile, his landscaping experience means that we deliver exactly the product that our customers want, exactly how and when they want it.
Will Todd – Director
Since embarking on his career in the nursery and landscaping trade will has concentrated on the technicalities of growing such as how to produce robust roots and containers, but also has a thorough understanding of the landscaping industry.
After studying Environmental Science and Economics at University, Will returned to the family business and was soon project managing large landscape construction products, including delivery of the landscaping at Heathrow’s Terminal 5 which at the time was the largest landscaping project in the UK.
Continued years of practical experience, which also saw him qualify as a Crane Lifting Supervisor, has helped Will to understand how trees fit into the final vision of a project, and the technicalities and logistics needed to deliver that vision. Understanding exactly how to lift and plant trees on site allows a better philosophy from the nursery in how to load, dispatch and prepare trees for their permanent destination.
