Ned Patchett is the President and founder of Ned Patchett Consulting, Inc. Ned’s “roots” in the tree care industry started when he was young working with his father’s business. As a teenager he learned the skills for climbing trees, diagnosing pests and diseases and most importantly how to approach tree care as an art from his father Kevin Patchett.
Having worked in the tree industry in the Peninsula and surrounding San Francisco Bay Area for over 25 years, Ned is extremely familiar with the native landscape and vast types of trees that grow in the region as well as the challenges they face: increasing susceptibility to pest & disease, the affects of urban growth, and the intensified exposure to construction & development impacts.
Ned’s expertise and experience in the field of arboriculture lead him to pursue landscape design in 2008 understanding that what occurred under the magnificent trees he loves and cares for can either greatly enhances their beauty and longevity or adversely affect their health. Ned holds the following certifications and licenses.
- Certified Arborist WE-4597A
- Tree Risk Assessment Qualification
- Qualified Applicator License 133884
