Where do you currently live? Worcestershire UK

 

Company Name: Pershore College part of the  Warwickshire College Group 

 

Field of expertise? (Arboriculture, Forestry, Conservation, Education, etc) Most of my career has been as a climbing arborist, early days I spent in forestry and conservation. Now I'm teaching and training young arbs.  

 

How Long have you worked in this industry? Just shy of 15 years. 

 

 

What is your favorite tree?  I have a Rowan (Sorbus Aucuparia) in my garden that I planted when my son was born, that's my favourite tree. If we are talking species I would struggle to pick on to be honest but I'll go with… Oak (Quercus Robur)

 

Highest tree you have climbed?  A big Cedar years back, unsure of the exact height but approaching 120ft.

What is your favourite climbing system? I've always climbed DRT/MRT with a Zigzag. 

 

If you could trade places with any other arborist around the world, which country would you like to work and why? I love working in the UK. Travelling has appealed to me before, but I get a lot of satisfaction from working locally on the trees I know and in the parks,/streets I visit.  

 

When you are not climbing trees what are your interests/hobbies? I spend time outdoors and I enjoy boxing (for fitness). But most of my down time is spent with my family and my son.  

 

Do you have any hidden talents you would like to share? Wouldn't be so hidden then would they…
