My work story begins with a lawn care and garden maintenance business in Sydney’s southwest. While working, I studied Certificate III in Horticulture (Arboriculture) to work exclusively with trees. I started my first business, Busy Bee Mowing and Gardens, at 21 until I found my calling in Arboriculture. After becoming qualified it was a natural progression to sell my mowing run and start Tree Tree Man Arborist Services. Climbing trees for a living is pretty hard work, and after 7 years of running a tree removal service, I wanted something different. Not long after, I founded my first internet business, GoTreeQuotes. I had a lot of knowledge to share on trees, and I noticed that the topic was not covered well or accurately. Plus, I was able to help readers make better decisions when hiring tree surgeons.
