AA Welcomes New Registered Consultant

We’re pleased to introduce Kevin Cloud as the newest member of the Registered Consultant scheme.

With over 20 years’ experience working with trees, woodlands and countryside, Kevin’s been a fully independent Tree Consultant for 5 years, providing expert tree advice to landowners. His background as a Tree Officer has given him extensive tree management experience covering all areas of Tree Preservation Orders and other detailed Woodland Management Plans for woodland managers. He also has a wealth of knowledge and passion for ecology and biodiversity, fostered during his years in Countryside Management.

Kevin is the manager of consulting firm 'Technical Arboriculture' in Waltham Chase, Hampshire and holds a degree (BSc Hons) in Rural Resource Management and Technician Certificate in Arboriculture. Kevin is already a Fellow of the Arboricultural Association, a member of the Consulting Arborists Society (CAS), an associate member of the Institute of Chartered Foresters, a Cardiff Law School certified expert witness and holds the LANTRA professional tree inspection certificate.

The aim of the scheme is to recognise excellence in the field of tree consultancy, and it is promoted by the Arboricultural Association as establishing the highest level of attainment available within the UK. The award of AARC status (which applies to an individual not an organisation or company) is made following a rigorous assessment process. Once accepted, all recipients of AARC status are required to meet prescribed business and professional standards.

The AARC scheme provides ready access to a network of experienced practitioners who have been assessed and accredited by the nation’s leading arboricultural organisation. Clients can be confident they will receive expert and objective advice from consultants bound by rigorous codes of ethics and professional conduct, enforced by a fully documented complaints procedure.
