Sharon is delighted to have been asked, by Yvonne Alexander, founder of Jet TV, to join a small group of people and discuss their favourite tree. ‘A Portrait of the Tree’, a collection of works by renowned photographer Adrian Houston. The list of tree lovers includes Sir Richard Branson Goldie Hawn and Nick Mason (Official) who have imparted fascinating stories about their favourites, and Sharon chose the Major Oak, subject of the Tree Radar survey by this company which recently appeared as a feature on BBC Springwatch. The exhibition of stunning photography, including the Major Oak, will appear at Unit London’s new Hanover Square site, from the 17th to 28th September, so make sure to get along to the exhibition.

Institute of Chartered Foresters 2016 National Study Tour
Sharon is playing a large part in this years ICF Study Tour, which will involve tours across many interesting London sites. Named ‘The Streets of London’ (ask Sharon why, and certainly get her to sing the first couple of lines), the event starts on the 5th October, and will feature Environmental Advisor and Broadcaster Prof Chris Baines, Peter Massini MCIEEM of the Greater London Authority, Mersey Forest’s Paul Nolan OBE MICFor, John Parker of Transport for London. A dinner on the 5th will be held, and there is an opportunity to download the full programme here. Great chance to meet up with like-minded colleagues, and a rare opportunity for many to hear the MD of a respected practice cover one of the most famous ‘trad’ songs ever written (if enough money changes hands).
