Peter Gray – Arborist

Peter previously taught at the Wollongbar Tafe where he shared his extensive knowledge and experience with many local students of arboriculture. His lifelong interest in trees began at age eight when he took responsibility for the pruning and cultivation of a small section of peach trees on this family’s stone fruit orchard.

An understanding of trees and their requirements permeates Peter’s business practice, and in an increasingly complex world, this knowledge is constantly counterpoised against a range of trees’ apparently competing interest the most common being safety, land development and the management of the urban forest.

Conflicts Regarding Trees

Often, where tree matters arise, various parties hold vested interests and may have competing or conflicting wants and needs. When it comes to professional advice, Peter Gray’s approach is to listen to the client’s brief without preconceptions and to advise without prejudice. Situations involving trees can be complex and multi-faceted in terms of how they may best be addressed, short-term, long-term or both.

Peter’s motto remains: “The needs of people come first, but running a very close second, come the needs of trees
