Laurence’s love of nature has been with him for as long as he has been able to walk. He started helping his grandparents and other family members in their gardens, gaining knowledge and skills. By the time he was 13, he was looking after 5 gardens single handedly. Laurence has over 15 years of gardening experience as well as being a qualified Tree Surgeon.
His passion evolved from a hobby, to a career, when he attended Writtle College studying Amenity Horticulture. His passion, morals and ambition, led to the establishment of Maple Tree Surgery & Landscapes Limited. Laurence wanted to work for himself promoting the use of sustainable practices and products in all of his work. This remains the underpinning of the firm.
Laurence truly believes that timber has the most environmental benefits over other building products. It is biodegradable, works efficiently as an insulator and remains 100% renewable.
These days Laurence is involved in expanding the good name of Maple Tree and Landscaping Limited, and concentrates on the Landscape Consultancy Service as well as our brand new service line – supplying bespoke and slab timber.
