Alex Sills – Director

Now in my 16th year as a tree surgeon, I have worked my way up from trainee to lead climber to site supervisor and now a director of Forres Tree Services.

Over the years I have been taught by some experts in the business with well over 30 year’s knowledge in arboriculture. I now bring this experience to Forres Tree Services in both domestic and commercial aspects of the company.

I view trees as a thing of beauty, and respect all they do to keep us alive on the planet. Where a tree has to be removed I like nothing better than seeing that timber being utilised as much as possible, be it a piece of furniture or to keep me warm on a winters day.
