Adam Roberts FdSc Arbor, ND Arbor, PTI
Adams background in arboriculture stems back to undertaking the Level 3 National Diploma in Arb at Sparsholt College in 2007, which kick started his working career by giving him the opportunity to complete a work placement at the National Arboretum at Westonbirt. This then lead him to complete a part time Level 5 FdSc in arboriculture at the same institute in 2010.
From then onwards Adam has been at the forefront of arboricultural practice, having gained experience in literally all arboricultural disciplines including day to day tree surgery practice, consultancy and customer relations. He then joined Nick, here at Acer Tree Surgeons in 2012 where he has continued to further his skills through continual professional development, becoming a valued Senior Arborist.
