Talking Trees with Ted Green MBE

Talking Trees is a series aimed at highlighting the positive side of trees and the people who manage them.

Mike Raupp’s Talking Trees was launched earlier in November and now we have the pleasure of showing everyone the much-loved living legend that is Ted Green MBE.

Ted explains how his fascination with trees grew and why we as arborists have the biggest responsibility to learn from and manage our trees.

Over the coming months we’ll be sharing more of these inspirational chats far and wide.

We also have a series on Biosecurity Awareness, featuring many experts from our partner organisations.
