Simon's background is as a forester with nearly 30 years experience having worked throughout the UK in lowland and upland locations. Since 1996, he has worked with two big private forestry companies in the North of England managing various properties on behalf of clients for investment and / or conservation. Prior to this, Simon was involved with roadside landscaping schemes, arboriculture and the public estate. His career started on a private estate in the Lake District as part of the forestry team and is therefore no stranger to the wet outdoors!

Simon says "The Tubex products have served me well over the years and the way they have evolved into the range available today is astonishing"
