Arb Health and Safety Awareness Fundraiser in memory of Alex Kirkley and Greg Bulbec

Last Updated:  20/04/2017

What is the AFL event?

Arborists For Life is an event set up as a reaction to the tragic deaths of Alexander Kirkley and Gregery Bulbec, who recently died in two separate work place incidents. The arboricultural community felt the loss at all levels and we felt there was an underlying desire to act, as a community, to help the families our friends left behind. We have been kindly supported by a number of industry related companies who were deeply moved by the events and felt compelled to aid our cause.

What’s On?

  • Guest speakers from the Arboricultural Association and other leading professionals
  • Expert practical demonstrations provided by S.C.J Training in partnership with Tree-Tech
  • Climbing and rope access competitions with prizes provided by Northern Arb Supplies and Honey Bros and Arborwear
  • Raffle tickets will be sold on the day with great prizes donated by Charles.H.Hill and Landmark Trading
