Meet The Team

Chris Dingle and Chris Hemming have been in business at Arb-Sense Ltd Tree Surgery Specialists for nearly two years. Previously they were both employed by the same company although trading under a different name. For Chris and Chris, tree surgery is life and they are both dedicated and passionate about every aspect of their careers, from huge tree dismantles right down to detailed risk assessments.

Chris Hemming

Chris Hemming has been working as a professional tree climber and groundsman for twelve years and has gained extensive knowledge about trees and tree surgery. Chris gained most of his qualifications in the first four years of being in the trade. Some of these include tree climbing, aerial rescue, chainsaw use, professional tree inspection, first aid and manual handling among many others. Chris’s speciality is dismantling large trees from his rope and harness. Chris is known to be a bit of a hobbyist and enjoys trying new things but mainly has always enjoyed Surfing, photography and music production. He is currently also learning the art of bonsai and putting his knowledge about trees into miniature practise! One day he would like to think that his two daughters will become tree climbers and take over the business.

Chris Dingle

Chris Dingle is a professional tree climber and groundsman and has been for 8 years. Before that Chris was a professional gardener and had a good client base in Cornwall. Having worked alongside other professionals he has gained knowledge about trees, plants and tree surgery. He has all the necessary qualifications to carry out any tree surgery work. Being quite nimble, Chris’s speciality is crown reductions where getting out to the ends of branches is key. Chris enjoys tinkering with engines and mechanical parts which comes in handy when things breakdown.
