Mark Short

I have been in the Horticultural/Arboricultural industry for 17 years, I have worked at Botanical Gardens in England, and various local Governments across Perth. I am currently working at the City of Bayswater as their in house Arborist, but also provide consultancy services privately to other Local Governments, developers and private residents.

My main focus at the moment is on Protection of trees on development sites and the provision of appropriate soil environments for new tree planting to reduce conflicts with infrastructure and to allow trees to grow to their full potential. The greatest challenge I face is convincing residents to want a tree on their verge!
