Meet the Team

Daniel Kaye – Managing Director

Daniel has a degree in Environmental Conservation as well as a qualification in Countryside Management. He is a hands-on Director and has built up years of on-site skills, experience and knowledge. He founded the company in 2007 after gaining experience working for companies offering similar services.  You know when Daniel is in the office as he is always followed around by his menagerie of Nimrod animals including 1 guard dog, 2 lurchers and 3 chickens!

Daniel Godfrey – Surveying and Operations

Daniel Godfrey joined Nimrod in 2012, he is our Surveyor and handles the company’s operations on a day-to-day basis.  Dan, or Godders as we call him, loves nothing more (apart from his family obvs) than flying his drone at the weekend and taking breathtaking photos and videos.  A bonus for us as he gets us some amazing Nimrod shots!

Reece Blackburn – Apprentice

Reece started with Nimrod in November 2018 and is currently doing a 2-year apprenticeship in arboriculture. He attends Askham Bryan College for 1 week per month and works the rest of the time with us obtaining on-the-job training and experience. His hobbies include watching motorsport and mountain biking.

Dean Joburns – Site Supervisor

Dean Joburns joined the Nimrod Team in October 2015 and is now one of our Site Supervisors.  Dean takes his 3 kids swimming every weekend, which is good practice for his outdoor job working in this fine English weather!  Dean has just completed his NVQ Level 2 in Trees and Timber.

Louis Atherton – Site Operative

Louis joined Nimrod in December 2014, he is the youngest (and loudest) member of the team.  We love him though and are always amused by his ability to eat 3 KitKat Chunkies every day (which he does not share)!  Louis has just completed his NVQ Level 2 in Trees and Timber.

Nichola Tevendale – Nimrod Senior Administrator

Nichola joined Nimrod in September 2020, she deals with all office related enquiries and administrative duties including social media and the website.  She looks forward to being a part of the team. Nichola brings with her the new Nimrod dog, Roxie.

Pete Kaye – Site Supervisor

Pete has worked at Nimrod for many years and we couldn’t be without his unrivalled knowledge of trees, plants and all things nature-related!  Pete is also a qualified tree climber too.

Big J – Full Time Site Security Specialist

Big J is fully trained in site security and personal protection.  One of the most intelligent dogs we have met, he is our full-time guard dog based outside in our yard.  Please ring the gate buzzer or the office phone before you enter! #friendlywarning
