We founded Coastal Raintree Consulting, Ltd. shortly after we moved to Gibsons in 2014.

Since then we have focused on establishing a professional and friendly relationship with clients, local authorities and other professionals across the Sunshine Coast while preparing science-based, fully compliant environmental studies.

We bring  to each of the studies and reports completed for our clients, the passion and expertise we have accumulated over 20 years of consulting and research experience.
