Margot Blues, Principal of Blues Arboricultural services has been operating since 1995. Her introduction to trees was through termites with extensive and long term study completed within a small termite research group. The natural progression into arboricultural occurred after the disbanding of the group and has attained qualifications AQF5 – Consulting Arborist.

The business is based on professionalism – the deliverance of good service at a high standard, on time and in accordance with instructional directives.

The knowledge and business of arboriculture continues to evolve with ongoing collaboration with other consulting arborists, continued ongoing professional learning and peer review. A practical response; continual research and development into product development and construction methodology enabling tree retention on building sites.

She is passionate about trees particularly those which should be retained within the environment and the planning and planting of new trees which will survive long term designed to be suitable for their growing position.

Adding to her skill is an advanced understanding of construction sites obtained through her husband’s excavation business.

She is regularly invited to guest lecturing to a variety of groups including:-

Primary school children (National tree planting days and the importance of trees)
Garden Groups
Field staff at various councils
Diploma of Horticulture (Arboriculture) Undergraduates on termites
