about us

trees associates is a UK-based landscape design practice founded by Tim Rees in 2005. After graduation with a Kew Diploma from the Royal Botanic Gardens at Kew in 1982 his friendship with noted gardener Rosemary Verey at Barnsley House led to a variety of commissions in Europe and the USA. From 1986 to 1994 he was Course Director of Garden Design at the Inchbald School of Design, establishing the first full time garden design course in Europe.

In the early 1990s he formed Schoenaich Rees Landscape Architects with Brita von Schoenaich. In 1994 they organized an influential seminar on naturalistic planting at RBG Kew which changed English planting style and lead to a variety of public and private commissions.

In 2005 they dissolved the partnership to pursue their respective interests and Tim established trees associates working on private residential projects in the USA, UK, Greece, Italy, France and Ireland. Public and private community garden projects involving a variety of stakeholders have been undertaken in London. In 2011 Tim Rees completed a Masters at Bath University in Conservation of Historic Gardens and Cultural Landscapes.
