Chris Hamill

Chris has a degree in Business Management from Northumbria University and ran a successful IT company in the North-east for 15 years. A strong desire to work in the forestry sector led to him re-training and gaining a Master’s in Environmental Forestry with Distinction from Bangor University.

Upon joining Pryor & Rickett Silviculture in 2015, Chris has been involved in the production of woodland management plans, and overseeing harvesting and restocking operations, including those in sensitive SSSI woodlands. Chris utilises his business experience and desire for long term sustainability to ensure that clients maximise profits, whilst minimising environmental impact. This is realised through an increased use of IT systems to streamline forestry operations, which reduces time spent on individual jobs.

Chris covers the management of client properties in Southern Scotland, and the English counties of Northumberland, Cumbria & Yorkshire.
