Ross Clark

Ross has dedicated his career to the continuous production and enhancement of landscape trees. Today, he stands as a prominent consultant, advisor, and spokesperson within the industry, advocating for improved tree quality and specifications. Ross actively conducts clinics, delivers insightful seminars for industry groups, and imparts his knowledge as a lecturer at educational institutions.

His notable achievement includes the development of the "NATSPEC" specification for trees, initially published by Construction Information Systems P/L in 1996 and later revised in 2003. This specification quickly gained recognition as the industry's most stringent standard, eventually evolving into the official Australian Standard, AS 2303:2018.

In recent years, Ross has expanded his focus beyond tree quality, adopting a holistic approach to ensure the success of our new urban trees. He has coined this comprehensive concept "The Urban Tree Puzzle." Currently, Ross is actively engaged in hosting a series of Urban Tree Puzzle talks and workshops, targeting councils, landscape architects, and landscape contractors. Through these engaging sessions, he aims to foster a deeper understanding and appreciation for the intricacies of urban tree management.

“Our experience, in working with a Citygreen Design Studio was second to none. We found responses from the design studio to be very timely, and technically thorough. We went backwards and forwards a number of times, looking at different iterations of the design and, nothing was too much trouble to examine and explore different possibilities. I would highly recommend the Citygreen Design Studio to any future client considering using your services.”

“We are big on compliance on all projects, and the fact that their SmartCertify cloud platform covers all bases, and supports their 20 year warranties, is critical – especially that these pits are being installed under roadways and footpaths.”
