Monthly Tree Surgery

Monthly Tree Surgery

Join us on Thursday 27 June from 16:30-17:30 for #TreeSurgery hosted by the Institute’s Arboriculture & Urban Forestry Steering Group.

These informal monthly drop-in sessions are a great opportunity for all members working in forestry, environment, arboriculture and urban forestry to get together to talk all things trees. #TreeSurgery does not have a formal agenda and has been designed for informal networking and knowledge exchange in a relaxed forum.

If you have any ideas for future sessions, please get in touch with the steering group.

Meet the Arboriculture & Urban Forestry Steering Group

Terry Crick MICFor – Director, Apex Arb Training Ltd

Terry started his tree journey back in 1993 after leaving HM forces, working as a forestry contractor in Gwydir and Clocaenog forests in north Wales. During this time in the forest, Terry conducted thinning and clear fell operations, later branching out into Arboriculture. As an arborist, he spent most of his time climbing and conducting crown work for a range of clients, including private households, utility companies and the Ministry of Defense. His company grew to around twenty staff and were awarded the AAAC status from the Arboricultural Association. He then became an assessor for NPTC and a registered instructor for LANTRA awards delivering practical skill training for a range of activities, and was involved with writing new course material and developing new training courses. Terry is a member of the Institute’s Professional Educational Standards Committee (PESC) and aims to promote arboriculture to a wider audience and help individuals on their career paths in the industry.

He has extensive private sector experience in a wide range of projects, having delivered complex development schemes for a range of clients including numerous small and medium housing developments, nationally significant strategic developments and infrastructure schemes.

Graham Owen MICFor – Senior Engineer, Network Rail

From the Countryside Force Youth Training Scheme with Staffordshire County Council, to the dynamic and demanding national role of Senior Engineer for Network Rail, Graham’s career pathway of 35 years has been full of twists, turns, shutdowns and a few line blockages, but also great enjoyment and achievement. Like a number of tree professionals, he has worn many hats over the years and a variety of hi viz jackets, including various shades of yellow, orange and green and sky blue with Fountains Forestry where he got his teeth into utility Arboriculture. Graham’s current role in Network Rail may seem on the surface a large step away from arboriculture, but involves seeking innovative solutions and ways of working that embraces a balanced approach to tree management, exploiting the benefits and limiting risk.
