Steve Evans is the principal Tree Consultant and director of Tree-Investment Ltd. He has over 25 years’ experience working with trees, having started his career planting literally hundreds of thousands of trees during his late teens and early twenties.

He developed a broad, loyal customer base ranging from hundreds of regular domestic customers to the National Trust and The Duchy of Cornwall.

Steve established Tree Investment in 2015 and relocated to Cornwall. Steve now provides tree management, advice and tree design services throughout Cornwall and the South West.
