This is Ben Robinson who will be starting as our Forester on 30th July.

Ben is currently finishing his Masters in Environmental Forestry at Bangor University with a placement in Papua New Guinea.

Ben said he was “really looking forward to living and working on Bute, meeting the community and helping them to get the most out of their forest.

“It is an exciting project which has a vision and opportunity to deliver real benefit to the island. The large amount of community interest and involvement is an invaluable asset which sets Bute Forest apart from so many other forests in the UK.”
