In Barcelona at the European Forum on Urban Forestry (EFUF) John Parker, Chair of the London Tree Officers Association (LTOA) and professional member of the association, was awarded the title of European Young Urban Forester of the Year 2017. This prestigious award is a reflection of John’s ongoing hard work for the LTOA and Transport for London (TfL), where he is Senior Technical Specialist – Arboriculture & Landscape. It is particularly in recognition of his efforts to bring together arboriculture and urban forestry across Europe.

John said:

“winning this award is an unbelievable honour for me personally and a fantastic acknowledgement of the national and international work that the LTOA has been doing. EFUF and the LTOA are two amazing groups which I feel have a lot in common and which are both very close to my heart. Tree officers deserve all of the recognition and support they can get and it is a privilege for me to be able to represent them at EFUF.”
