In 1994 Mark Carter started a business as an arboricultural contractor which developed into MJC Tree Services Limited. A steady increase in demand for arboricultural consultancy services led to the decision, in 2004, to cease all contracting operations and concentrate solely on the consultancy element of the business. Mark accepts and successfully carries out instructions from a wide range of clients from across the UK, but especially London and the south, including domestic, corporate and local authority.
'Through a combination of hard work, professional studies and integrity, Mark is now nationally recognised and respected as one of the UK’s top arboricultural consultants. He became a Fellow of the Institute of Chartered Foresters in 2014, a Chartered Forester in 2007, which changed to Chartered Arboriculturist in 2008, and a Chartered Surveyor in 2008. Between 2014 and 2019 Mark was also a Registered Consultant of the Arboricultural Association but left this scheme after becoming dissatisfied with the way the same was being operated by the Association, but he remains a Professional Member of the Arboricultural Association.
Since 2015 Mark has been an assessor of Chartered applicants for the Institute of Chartered Foresters and he has also written technical articles that have been published in trade magazines and journals.
