We’re delighted to announce the appointment of Jack Kenyon to our Research Advisory Committee (RAC).
Fund4Trees has a Research Policy which is guided by the RAC, advising the trustees on all funding applications made for grants. We rely on leading expert tree specialists like Jack Kenyon to ensure our hard-earned charitable income is invested wisely for public benefit. Read more
RAC Chair, Rob MacKenzie, said:
“F4T wants to fund research that really changes arboricultural practice for the better. Having Jack’s view on submitted proposals, based on his long experience as an educator and practitioner, will greatly strengthen our confidence in our assessments of proposed research”.
RAC member, Dr David Lonsdale, said:
“I very much welcome the appointment of Jack Kenyon to the Research Advisory Committee. I believe that the committee’s work will benefit greatly from his wealth of knowledge, both practical and theoretical, and from his common sense approach to the needs of the arboricultural industry. His renowned excellence as an educator, established during his many years at Merrist Wood College, is in my opinion underpinned by a capacity for clear thinking, which will equip him to serve with distinction on the committee”.
At the 9thLondon Tree & Woodlands award ceremony, Fund4Trees trustees Martin Gammie & Russell Ball, together with Chair of the Forestry Commission Sir Harry Studholme, signed the ‘Tree Charter’.
The new Charter for Trees, Woods and People celebrates the 800th anniversary of the original document created by Henry III in 1217.
In November, Fund4Trees are planning to take a copy of the new Charter on a 180-mile bike ride from the famous ancient yew in Ankerwycke to Lincoln Cathedral where the Charter will be launched. We’ll make further announcements about this soon.
