Business Name: Apex Arborists
Location: King’s Lynn, Norfolk
Upon leaving school, Matthew Alway had no idea what profession he wanted to pursue, but he knew that he wanted to be his own boss. Fuelled by this and a desire to be content in whichever career path he took, when he stumbled across tree surgery he knew it could be the perfect fit.
With his ‘can do’ attitude, Matthew, from King’s Lynn, set about gaining work experience and enrolling on an arboriculture course. He worked his way up, gathering skills and experience along the way. Starting his own business was the natural next step. He launched Apex Arborists in January 2017.
Nwes spoke to Matthew about his start-up journey and plans for the future.

What is unique about Apex Arborists?
As a tree surgeon, my job is to ensure trees and people live in harmony. Sometimes this cannot be achieved by pruning alone, and unfortunately some trees will be removed, due to safety concerns or simply the wrong species in the wrong location.
Apex Arborists offer to plant a native tree for every one we remove. As they say, the best time to plant a tree was 20 years ago. The second best time is now. With this in mind, you can rest assure Apex Arborists will be giving back.
