About TrunkArb

Meet the Team

Mark Harris

Mark Harris is the company’s Managing Director and runs TrunkArb Tree Surgery Ltd. from Woolaston with his wife, Georgina the company’s Administrative Director.  They have two sons and Mark’s family can be traced back in Woolaston for generations.  

Mark is a retired soldier, having left the Army as a Major in the Infantry after 17 years service throughout the world, taking his final tour before leaving in Afghanistan where he was commended for leadership and bravery.  Having had an interest in trees, their maintenance and associated wildlife for many years, he qualified as a tree surgeon over 15 years ago and spent most of his holidays and weekends working as a tree climber. Mark continues to enjoy expanding his knowledge of the industry, most recently reflected in his studying for a Level 4 in Arboriculture.

Georgina Harris

Georgina (George) is the company’s Administrative Director, managing all things behind the scenes and delivering the high standard of customer service, organinsation and efficiency she and Mark expect of the whole team.  After a career in property management, sales and finance George stopped working to have the children, taking over the administration of TrunkArb once both boys had started school.  You are unlikely to have to make her tea but if the opportunity arises she takes it white with one sugar.

Chris Parry
