About Andrea…

Andrea is an energetic forester, he meets the physical demands of the day in, day out, all weathers work that forestry is.

We rely on him for tree work, hand felling, machinery operation and planting work. He’s made forestry his home and he’s growing his knowledge everyday.


I grew up in Italy and helped run the family farm. There I was involved some forestry work. Because I’ve always enjoyed being outside doing physical work forestry was an easy decision for me.

I’ve always been hands on and adept with plant and machinery too so I was suited to the work with English Woodlands Forestry and  living in Brighton with my growing family I’m in easy reach of our working woodlands.


Andreas receives on site training for forest operations.


Andrea has expertise in small woodland works, felling, planting, invasive weed control, woodland maintenance – and of course running and maintaining the JCB Forestmaster Mulcher.
