And a hearty welcome back to the office for our ecologists and arboriculturalists!
It’s been a manic summer, packed with a real plethora of interesting places, buildings and habitats for us to survey, survey, survey. From woodlands to barns, brownfield sites to ancient trees, we’ve really seen it all this summer. Two days have really stood out though where we can showcase all that Arbor Vitae does; Burwarton Show and our guided farm walk. Our stand at the annual and incredibly popular Burwarton Show was as enjoyable as ever, despite Bertie the Bugcatcher not being able to make it this year! To all the youngsters disappointed in his absence though….you never know, he might just be back again next year!
The second pinnacle of the summer, our guided farm walk, was a result of the Whitegrove Trophy we won back in the Autumn of last year. With a picture and write up in the local farming press, it was wonderfully well attended, and really topped off the satisfaction of being awarded the prize.
