Institute of Chartered Foresters awards top students

Five forestry and arboriculture degree graduates have won best student awards from the Institute of Chartered Foresters (ICF).

The ICF award recognises the brightest students graduating with forestry and arboriculture degrees across the UK. Winners receive a cheque from the ICF together with a certificate presented by ICF chartered members.

The five graduate winners were: Thomas Coates from The National School of Forestry in Cumbria, Claire Harbison from Myerscough College, William Malcolm from The University of Bangor, Anthony Marshall from The University of Edinburgh, and Kamil Witkos from the University of Aberdeen.

ICF president Bill MacDonald FICFor said: "The ICF strives to recognise and support excellence in forestry and arboriculture, not only from our chartered members but from anyone working towards a career in forestry or arboriculture. All five graduates have demonstrated a focus on excellence. They should be very proud of what they have accomplished so far. ICF looks forward to supporting them as their careers develop along with other graduates working towards Chartered Forester status."
