Photograph - Mike EllisonSince forming Cheshire Woodlands in 1988, Mike has developed an international reputation as a leader in the field of tree safety management. Having published the peer reviewed 'Quantified Tree Risk Assessment' method in 2005, he has trained more than 1100 arborists and tree managers in its application and has spoken on the topics of 'tree-failure risk' and 'tree stability' at conferences around the world.

In 2004, Mike was made an honourary life member of the International Society of Arboriculture for his contribution to the field of tree risk assessment and in 2005 was presented with the Arboricultural Associations annual award for services to arboriculture.

Mike's current focus is on managing safety from falling trees, but his expertise extends across a wide range of tree management specialisms and he has provided expert evidence in both the criminal and civil courts.
