RE:Will more women in Arb be beneficial, or should we just leave it to the guys?

I agree, there is a wider issue with young people in general coming into the industry but also regarding people’s perception of the different types of roles available. Within our consultancy we have women who have worked as Arboricultural Consultants (although far more men), GIS/ AutoCAD Technicians, Project managers, Software developers and Directors. I do think it’s the historical route into the industry (tool based) which may not have made it obvious everything it has to offer. I echo your thoughts in regard to the fact that more people in general would be a great thing but as an employer I would like to see more women coming to interview like we do in ecology or landscape.
