Richard Gauld, Tree Specialist is a tree surgery and consultancy business, established in 1999 and based near to Thornhill in Dumfries and Galloway. Work is undertaken for both the private and public sectors and includes both practical tree surgery, ranging from pre- development site clearance to management of single or groups of trees with high amenity value to a full range of inspection and consultancy work for the purposes of Development, Safety and Management.
Prior to the establishment of the organisation Richard served a four year arboriculture and horticulture apprenticeship with Dundee City Council before attending Askham Bryan College to achieve an NDH, majoring in arboriculture. This followed with two years practical experience with a tree surgery business before establishing himself with Cherwell District Council in Oxfordshire as the Local Authority Tree Officer. He undertook this job for a period of eight years and then moved to Scotland where Richard Gauld, Tree Specialist was formed.
As well as having undertaken the many N.P.T.C. chainsaw qualifications, he is also a fully qualified Lifting Operations & Lowering Equipment Regulations (LOLER) Inspector, 2006, and has undertaken Arboricultural Inspection and Report courses. Richard is a professional member of the Arboricultural Association and the International Society of Arboriculture. All work is carried out to appropriate British Standards.
It is the policy of the business that on completion of any tree work all arisings are removed from site, as discussed with clients, and re-used where appropriate. All brash is chipped and composted to be recycled as garden mulch or animal bedding. We practice a friendly, honest and reliable service with all work carried out competitively, completed on time and with the minimum of disruption.
