“Calling for More Tree Surgeons” – Interview by Varsity
Dr. Caroline LAW, Teaching Fellow at the Department of Environment, Faculty of Design and Environment at THEi was interviewed by Varsity – an award-winning magazine of the School of Journalism and Communication, Chinese University of Hong Kong (CUHK).
The news with video footage (URL: http://varsity.com.cuhk.edu.hk/index.php/2018/05/calling-for-more-tree-surgeons-arborists/ ) highlighted the shortage of arborists in Hong Kong for public attention, and was available online on 10 May, 2018.
During the interview, Dr. Caroline LAW shared her view on the increasing demand for arborists and tree risk assessors throughout the last decade. Some fatal tree falls onto public streets in the past year raised concerns of the property owners. They have to consider the consequences of defect trees within their premises. In order to cope with the demand of arboricultural professionals, THEi offers a degree programme in Horticulture and Landscape Management starting from 2015.
