What the lecturer said: Worked above and beyond the requirements of the course. David’s attendance has been exemplary as has his application whilst at college. He always gives his best and his passion for trees has lead him into exploring Shigo, Mattheck and Lonsdale which is a good start in anyone’s book.

What David said: I previously did a college course but didn’t enjoy but I had completed some landscape work and enjoyed the tree part of the job. So I enrolled on the forestry and Arb course which I have really enjoyed. The strongest aspect of my work has been the practical work and with the support of the excellent tutors at the college I have develop edand improve these skills. So I am very pleased to recieve the RFS Silky Fox Handsaw Award in recogniton of this improvement.
