About Us

About Us

Dart Tree Consultancy was set up in 2011 by Keith McBride and Stewart Killick. We noticed a requirement for an independent tree consultancy which was not connected to a tree surgery company. That way any advice given is in the best interests of you and your trees. We operate across the South-West including Devon, Cornwall, Somerset and Dorset.

Keith, since setting up the organisation has qualified as a Professional Tree Inspector with Lantra  – the highest tier for tree inspector which Lantra currently offers. Also is a certified license holder of the Quantified Tree Risk Assessment (QTRA) method of tree risk assessment. Most recently completed a tree related Subsidence course by the Arboricultural Association.

He currently lives in the South Hams. He is kept busy with his young family and plays hockey for a team in Plymouth, as well as many other sports.

Stewart has over 40 years experience in the industry. Previously owning and running a tree surgery business with 50 employees. Stewart holds a Diploma in Arboriculture.

Stewart is kept busy with charity work as the Head of Governors at a local school and is currently undertaking to build his own home in the South Hams, consequently he is knowledgable in all kinds of planning matters.
