I am currently working in the City of Surrey with SNAP – Surrey’s Natural Area Partnership. While two other teams work on Outreach and Habitat Restoration, my team cares for trees. Installing tree wells for city trees is our main duty, which involves removing grass around tree trunks then filling the space with bark mulch. At times, we collaborate with the other SNAP teams; working a project site taking out invasive species with Habitat Restoration or Helping Outreach with outreach to the public at parks. So far though this term, I’ve been able to work on my tree health assessment and identification skills, communication and public relations, and developed an understanding of the behind the scenes of a city’s operations. This experience has been invaluable in providing a foundation of knowledge for a future career while supplying the network to obtain it.
