Forestry and arboriculture students put their tree pruning skills into action

Our countryside students have been busy working out in the community helping Elworth Cricket Club with some of their redevelopments.

With a plan to revitalise their under 18s practice area, the cricket club called upon our countryside department for help in tidying up some overhanging lime trees.

Sixteen second year forestry and arboriculture students worked on the project cutting back and crown lifting the tree branches to make more space for the junior cricket players to train.
