Sir William Worsley Interview

ICF Zoom Interview

Today Sharon hosted the second in the Institute of Chartered Foresters occasional series on ‘My Life in Three Trees’. We are delighted that Sir William Worsley has agreed to be interviewed via the  Zoom platform.

Sir William is a forester, land owner and Chartered Surveyor. He has had a life-long love of trees and has served as the President of the CLA, and was a member of the Forestry Commissions Advisory Panel.

He came in particular to the public eye for being the first National Tree Champion until February this year. He also serves as Chairman from the National Forest Company, and is now the Chair of the Forestry Commission following Sir Harry Studholme’s 7 years in post.

National Arbor Day

Radio Lancashire

Sharon was asked to travel and speak to the students at Myerscough College in Preston and organised by Duncan Slater, presenting the first National Arbor Day in her role as Vice President of the Institute of Chartered Foresters.  At lunch an interview with (click this link for the interview) BBC Radio Lancashire went out with Stephen Lowe.

To quote Duncan, the day is/was …….’a massive opportunity to promote the many benefits that trees can bring to communities – and also highlight the arboricultural industry as essential for providing, maintaining and managing those trees’.
