Ecoarb’s owner and director, Josh, has been working with trees for the last 20 years. He really enjoys the social interaction with clients and helping them in their gardens and properties, and ensuring that our clients are really happy with our work. Another important goal for Josh is to create a stable, exciting and fulfilling work environment for the team. Outside of work, he loves spending time with his family, playing drums and dirt bike riding.
