What the lecturer said: As well as his Diploma, Gethin has also achieved some valuable practical certificates during this same time frame. These include Chainsaw Use, Pesticide spraying and Use of the Chipper certificates. He has secured work with a firm of Utility Arboriculture contractors and the Silky Saw prize will be invaluable in his new job. Gethin has made a great effort to improve his knowledge and experience during his time at Glynllifon – and will make good use of the excellent prize.


What the student said: I am delighted to get this great prize – it will be useful for me in my daily work as a trainee tree surgeon.


What the college said: The College is again very appreciative of the continued support from both the RFS, and Silky Saws in awarding this valuable prize.
