We speak with John Parker, Chair of the London Tree Officers Association (LTOA).
John Parker, whose Chairmanship of the London Tree Officer’s Association has been characterised by a charisma and enthusiasm that has had a ripple effect across all 33 boroughs, talks to me about the need to face the challenges of below ground constraints head-on. What do we know about and how can we overcome situations where the ‘ideal’ tree pit design cannot be implemented?
John is a vital sounding board for all those working in the industry who value pragmatic feedback and an expertise predicated on experience of complex retrofit scenarios and highways schemes.
Watch out for our Case Study of Blackfriars Road tree pit trials which is closely related to the topics discussed in this podcast.
