Kirsty Smith, winner from Northumberland had the following to say about her nomination.
"The past year at college has been a great experience in learning about arboriculture, gaining new skills and pushing myself out of my comfort zone. I've managed to achieve my personal goals and more with the collective help of the tutors who have always been generous in sharing their time, knowledge and experience."
