Harry Timms, 26, from Andover runs his own company, H Timms Tree Management, is a lead climber and site foreman, in work covering tree removals and reductions, hedge cutting and site clearance.

The final of the competition, set up by workwear company Dickies, will be held at an MCE British Superbike meeting at the Brands Hatch racing circuit in Kent on 16 October.

Here all six finalists, whittled down from thousands of entries, will undergo a Dragon's Den-style questioning on their work by a panel of judges.

The winner will have the choice of a Kawasaki Ninja 300 motorbike or a £5,000 holiday, and will also receive a year's free shopping at Asda.
