“Tree Hunter meets the Tree Minister”

Tree hunter Rob McBride has been on an amazing journey with us – from Ancient Tree Hunt verifier to film star and now right through to directly lobbying the Secretary of State. Here’s what happened when Rob met Owen – read Rob’s personal account of the meeting at this link: Tree hunter meets tree minister. Thanks for sharing this with us, Rob!

    ‘Tree Hunter’? That sounds ominous does it have something to do with tree removal services like http://www.jcstreeservice.com/about-us/tree-services

    To grab a politician’s attention for 35 minutes is a feat in itself, well done to the Tree Hunter. At least he has helped to indicate to all ministers, the love and respect for nature that the general public possess. We are watching every move that this and the next government makes, just like I suspect they are of us.

      Rob is a total star, Tony – like so many of our supporters he is always willing to get out there and inspire others! Whether that’s in person or sharing photos, or in writing on websites and blogs as you do too. I’ll send the comments on this post to him so he can reply himself as well
