En route to Melnik, Czech Republic, to run a workshop.
I have been lucky and privileged to having been able to witness the evolution of the Czech arborist scene over the past fifteen year. Returning every couple of year has been like watching the process through in time lapse photography: From the early days when there was just a handful of idealists and pioneers, through to today, with a well established industry with youngsters coming to events for whom it is a given that an arborist industry exists.
What other industry offers the possibility to experience this kind of process first-hand?
On the way here I decided to skip a visit to the Mayday Motel… 😂 The mind boggles.
