Eve Over: Inspiring other women into forestry careers

To celebrate International Women’s Day today (March 8) meet Eve Over, the new Honorary Warden for the RFS Charles Ackers Grove and Naylor Pinetum, here as she describes how taking a forestry course was the ‘best decision’ of her life and why more women should consider forestry as a career.

Eve talks with our Development Officer Georgia Spooner about why she loves her work and why she considers the coast redwoods at the Charles Ackers Grove one of the wonders of the world.

Eve has a Masters and PHd from Bangor University, ran her own forestry management company for 20 years and now works with Natural Resources Wales on future land management schemes and in particular on woodland management and creation schemes.

In a year when International Women’s Day is celebrating Women in Leadership – she is an inspiration.

She has taken over the role of Honorary Warden from David Williams who is stepping down after a remarkable 42 years’ service and who, along with Gordon Griffiths, will continue to support Eve.
