This is our amazing Arboriculture Manager, Peter, standing in front of a row of Pinus radiata trees that he planted on campus 36 years ago in 1985!
These are just some of the 10,000 trees that Peter and his team manage on University grounds.
We salute you and your team Peter.
This month three members of the Grounds Team celebrate a combined 90 years working at the University.
Colin Hole achieved 20 years service, Andy Pulman achieved 30 years service and Peter Greenwood achieved 40 years service.
Peter also received a long service medal and certificate from the RHS in honour of his 40 years working in the horticulture industry.
Congratulations to them all for this wonderful and rare achievement.
