I have worked as an arboriculturist for over twenty years. I consider myself fortunate to have worked closely in my career with some very enthusiastic arboriculturists, are great thinkers and doers who have supported and believed in me, and I have also made a point of fully embracing all new opportunities that come my way in my career so that I can continue to challenge myself.

I am so proud to be working to protect and preserve these amazing organisms. It’s so important to be content in the work that you do, and I’ve found arboriculture a highly rewarding industry to be working in.”

“My work varies dramatically and that’s what I like the most about it. Some days I’m commenting on new national tree policies and others I am responding to a fallen limb on the highway.”

“Seeing the fantastic achievements of other women in the Arboriculture industry and seeing them undertake work which defies typical expectations also made me want to get involved. It truly is commendable how far women have come in this industry and the great things they have done to help new research and progress; I knew that I wanted to get involved and be like them.”

The Women in Arboriculture Group aims to support and champion females in the tree care industry while collaborating to encourage a culture change and greater diversity. The group welcomes views, ideas and constructive comments from anyone in the industry.

Promoting Diversity

Diversity has a vital role to play in raising the profile of arboriculture. By sharing experiences, we hope to encourage more people to seek a career in arboriculture.

Sharing Knowledge

Providing Support

Supporting and offering guidance to those with less experience is crucial, so we’ve developed a forum for you to ask questions and share knowledge
