“I’ve gone from climbing, to surveying, to consultancy and I’m now working for the Forestry Commission in their Tree Health Team which is something I never imagined that I could do with the qualifications I achieved in arboriculture.”
Michelle Ryan (Senior Arboriculture & Landscape Specialist)
Michelle Ryan, AA chair, talks about women in arboriculture and the Women In Arboriculture working group in the lead up to International Women’s Day 2020.
“If women that are wanting to come into the industry see themselves or see people like them, then they’ll be more inclined to join…There’s variety, you don’t have to be a tree climber, but if you want to, do it!”
