A pioneering international accreditation programme to standardise vocational training and assessment in the arboriculture industry across the world is being championed by the UK's largest, specialist arboricultural company, Gristwood and Toms Ltd.

On Friday 15th December 2017, Barry Miller, Arboricultural Team Leader at Gristwood and Toms, was chosen to receive the 'Contractor Colleague Award' from Optivo; one of the largest housing providers in the UK. This particular award is presented to one contractor each year at the Estate Services Super-Star Awards Ceremony. Barry was praised for the quality of his work, commitment and excellent customer service and was presented with a trophy at the 'Christmas-themed' awards ceremony.
