Angus joined the team in 2023, working with both the Trust and B&NES council. Angus’s role involves supporting the council with their tree planting needs within their green infrastructure and nature recovery projects.
Angus’ love of trees blossomed in his previous role working for an Arboricultural Association Approved contractor in the Mendips. Seeing the devastation unfolding from Ash Dieback Disease, Angus wanted to take a more active role in the creation and establishment of new woodland and trees, and the protection of existing woodland to help a struggling landscape for future generations to come.
Angus is currently working towards his level 2 in arboriculture, which is giving him a greater understanding of the importance of trees in our world. In a previous role, Angus worked as a support worker for the YMCA, working with young people to help them into independent living. This role highlighted the need for places in nature to help bring a positive impact to people’s wellbeing.
Outside of work and studying, Angus enjoys spending as much time outside with his wife and children. He is lucky enough to live in Wells, where there is no shortage of woodland and parks for them to enjoy!
