The Browns Tree Solutions Team
I have been a tree surgeon for 25 years and I started my own business 22 years ago. I love climbing trees and the thrill of the job. Sadly, I have had to retire from climbing due to a number of injuries, however I have
replaced the climbing with my love of running and swimming.
Over the years I have been fortunate enough to work in Germany alongside a world class climber who then went on to be a Welsh and UK climbing champion, which was very inspirational.
I spend my time quoting and can often be seen helping the guys drink tea and chat on site.
Our tree works take us all over the region and we have completed work for the 2012 Olympics in London, we also felled the trees at the Big Brother House and more recently we carried out tree operations to enable the new car Park at John Lewis in CMK to be built.
In my spare time aside from my running and swimming, I enjoy playing Bass and listening to music. I love being outdoors and love to climb mountains. I have climbed the 3 peaks and would love to climb Mount Blanc. I also enjoy watching Rugby and taking my youngest son to Olney rugby club and watch Northampton Saints reguarly.
My name is Suzanne Brown and I am Ray's Wife. I have been part of the tree business for about 6 years now. My role within the business is helping Jazmine (step daughter) with all aspects of administration, invoicing, HR, processes, business development, advertising, marketing and general management of the office.
This past year I have been stepping back a bit from the business to promote my Charity Als Pals which I have started in memory of my dad Alan who I lost to Cancer. Als Pals is a cancer buddy scheme based in Milton Keynes University Hospital and to find out more please click here...www.alspalsmk.co.uk. I am also proud to be a Charity Ambassador of Milton Keynes Hospital Charity as well.
Aside from this, in my spare time I love to take on personal fundraising challenges and so far I have completed 2 Skydives, a wing walk, hot coal walk, Half Marathon, 10K challenge and last year participated in my hardest challenge yet Ultra White Collar Boxing.
My proudest achievement aside from my 3 beautiful children was completing a part time Law degree and this certainly helps me in Business. I love going to the Gym reguarly and socialising. I have also been brave enough to start singing at open Mic nights and recently have managed to get a few small gigs.
My name is Jaz Brown, I am fairly new to the business. I started working with Browns Tree Solutions Ltd last year (2019), I work full time in the office alongside Suzanne. I have always been interested in becoming part of the family business which has been going since 1998; before I was born! Although I am not on site with the lads every day, I’m not afraid to get my hands dirty and help when necessary!
I’ve always loved nature, being outdoors. Over the years I have climbed all 3 peaks (Snowden, Scafell Pike, Ben Nevis) , completed a half marathon and a midnight moo. Myself, Suzanne and others have also signed up for a skydive this year (2020) to raise money for her new charity Als Pals, in memory of her father Alan William Dumbell.
I am hoping one day I will be able to join my dad, Ray Brown, in running the business and hopefully keep it going through the family.
My name is Frank, I am 7yrs old and work at home in the office alongside Suzanne and Jaz. My duties include annoying Jaz until she takes me out for a walk, saying hi to everyone who walks past the window and relaxing on my bean bag because being a dog is hard work. I love playing with toys; tennis balls are my favourite, though my sister Lucy hates when I play with them (I think she’s just jealous I still have teeth)
I’m Lucy and I am 70yrs old (in dog years that is), I like to think I am the boss in the office. My favourite thing to do is curl up on a blanket and take a nap after a long hard walk. My brother Frank is so annoying so I like to get him back by stealing his food, taking up as much space as I can on our bean bags and snoring loudly. I love my family and I am always ready to protect them from danger like the postman, our neighbours and anyone who comes within 2m of our house.
