In the 22 years since Greenman’s inception, the significant changes in UK and EU environmental legislation, best practice and guidance have constantly guided the way we work and deliver projects. We have closely followed the growing inter-relationships between environmental professions and worked to forge lasting partnerships between our clients and the land based professions including Arboriculture, Ecology, Landscape Architecture, Urban and Master Planning and Design.

As with all specialist professions, our core output is information and it is key that we present our clients with the clearest and transparent set of information to suit their needs without over complication or reliance on technical specifics. We see ourselves as landscape interpreters with our training and collective experience as the prism through which our clients can gain an understanding to help them achieve their objectives.We have embraced technological developments such as GIS/GPS and used them to provide efficiencies in our work, helping to present clearer and more accurate results for our clients and stakeholders and improve the flow of information between us all.
