Luke Hemmings is working with the UK Forestry Commission and I met him at the Institute for Chartered Foresters (https://www.charteredforesters.org/)  National Conference this April. He is great to connect with!

His blog:


"I am truly passionate about and fully committed to multi-purpose Forestry and upholding the highest standards of Silviculture and Forest Management. I won the Woodland Heritage "Prince of Wales Award" for ‘Outstanding Young Person of the Year’ in 2011; was involved in planting new native woodlands in Slovakia as part of a community regeneration program; am a member of The Institute of Chartered Foresters and ConFor, and a fully qualified chainsaw operator.

At a professional level I have particular expertise in sustainable forest management, timber harvesting & utilization, hardwood timber production and low impact silvicultural systems. I deal with G.I.S. electronic mapping and timber production surveys, and have also advised clients in the Private sector on landscape design, visual impact assessments, forestry planning, and public consultations. A good communicator and people manager, I am capable of getting out and 'getting my hands dirty' in the field, as well as project planning, oversight and co-ordination.

Having travelled and worked in the USA, India, New Zealand and Sweden, I have experience of many different cultures and approaches to land use. I have also worked on organic farms and small holdings and had my own landscaping business for short time. I have a BSc in Forestry and Woodland Management from the National School of Forestry at Newton Rigg, which combined with a placement year working for the Forestry Commission in Thetford Forest, East Anglia, gaining first hand experience of managing a truly multi-purpose forest.

When not on my bike, hill walking or navigating down a river on a kayak, I am probably working on my own timber construction of some kind!"- Luke
