RFS - Silky Fox Handsaw Award


Todd Wynn Eyton

The RFS Silky Fox Handsaws Award rewards students who have stood out on practical forestry and arboriculture courses as they start their careers. The award is given for the best student or the student showing most endeavour as they gain practical hands-on skills in tree and woodland care.

"This award helps to promote the vital combination of skills needed to succeed in the arboriculture industry,"

Myerscough College.

The prize is a Gomtaro Silky Handsaw and a year’s membership to the RFS.

The initiative recognises the increasing value of further education (FE) training programmes in forestry and arboriculture across the UK in providing access to the industry. FE training is consistently delivering the essential practical and theoretical skills needed to launch careers in tree care and woodland management, with many colleges boasting excellent employment rates.

The RFS is delighted to be working in partnership with Silky Fox Handsaws for this special education initiative.
