The Treework team had an excellent couple of days in Snowdonia last week.
Firstly Mike lead us up Mount Snowdon for a day of rocky terrain and incredible views and brought us back down again safely.
We all met up at the Pen-y-Pass car park and set out in great weather conditions at around midday. We ‘conquered’ the Welsh giant after a scramble from the Miners track to the summit at around 3pm! After a much deserved group photo at the top we made our way down the Pyg track and back to the car park for around 5pm. A few pints and dinner where a welcome site back at our Hotel in Betws-y-Coed.
The next day we had our bio monthly team meeting at which Paul Muir presented to us on tree statics and safety factors.
We had a guest speaker, Brian Palmer, a volunteer from The Woodland Trust give us an excellent talk on their current ancient woodlands restoration projects in Snowdonia. It was very interesting to see the work they are doing.
Our team meetings are always a great opportunity to get together and galvanise our focus and cohesiveness and delivery of excellence given that we work remotely and are spread across the country.
We had a great couple of days. A highlight for me was the Snowdon walk and at the team meeting Paul Muir gave an impeccable presentation on tree engineering, tree statics and safety factors. The afternoon sessions included an excellent and very interesting talk by The Woodland Trust on the Ancient woodlands of Snowdonia and the ‘Celtic Rainforest’ and a presentation on the next version of our excellent tree management software programme – MyTrees, by Norbert.
An excellent and productive 2 days were had by all!
