In a subsequent ruling, the Judge awarded JFL’s client a substantial six figure sum for costs. As a refresher, the original episode featured the following:-Why the Ancient Woodland Inventory is a fake, and the hazard this creates for housing deliveryThe error of law in the Forestry Commission's Operations Note 52The fraudulently construed Highways England felling licence, knowingly granted by the FC in deliberate subversion of the statutory framework'Catch all the episodes through the Tree Lady Talks website 
 Astonishing events occur beneath the sea: a mysterious glow beckons at night, the smallest organisms play the largest role, and fish, who seem so taciturn, converse with each other—loudly.  But we only know a fraction of the sea, despite its size and intrigue—even the moon’s surface has been studied more than the ocean’s depths.In The Blue Wonder, marine biologist and diver Frauke Bagusche brings readers along with her into the ocean and offers solutions for the future.Click below for links to fantastic fish choruses and other ocean audio, and more!https://owlconnected.com/archives/fish-dawn-chorushttps://www.newscientist.com/article/2130815-hear-the-roar-of-the-lionfish-recorded-for-the-first-time/https://www.newscientist.com/article/2106331-fish-recorded-singing-dawn-chorus-on-reefs-just-like-birds/https://news.curtin.edu.au/stories/singing-fish-no-tall-tale/www.fraukebagusche.comwww.thebluemind.orghttps://www.penguinrandomhouse.de/Buch/Das-blaue-Wunder/Frauke-Bagusche/Ludwig/e540609.rhd

It all happens in a virtual coffee shop. Michelle Ryan, Chair of the Arboricultural Association, has created a Women in Arb group, and for this episode, Sharon has joined her and a group of ladies in the profession to discuss everything from a woman's point of view.If you're looking to get into this profession, this is a fascinating insight from people who do it, and some great views about what is happening in the industry from a female perspective, including interviews with Lesley Adams, Claire Harbinson, Georgi Ennis, Michelle Ryan herself, Stella Bolam and Theri Riechlin, with contributions from Sophie Chappell of the Arboricultural Association, Sarah Maddox (Bartlett UK), Bettina Broadway-Mann, Sara Noons, (Gloucestershire Council), Jane Conway, Laura Gardener and Sheila Bishop.

This is a taster of a long documentary entirely featuring women who are working in the arboricultural industry - tree surgeon, tree officer, arboricultural consultants, a career-changer,  a technical specialist, and the Chair of the Arboricultural Association. And it's all conducted in a virtual coffee shop.  
In this episode, Naomi explains the path her career took when a career in dance was set aside for a chance to work in arboriculture.  She explains:-Growing up in Bronx NY and studying dance and music throughout my formative years, I would never have imagined the professional life realized. I studied Botany, Horticulture, Landscape Design, but nothing fit until my first hike in the Catskills (NY) Forever Wild forest. My tree journey led me to the developing world of Urban Forestry studies and a relationship with Federal and State Urban Foresters, enabling me to    • co-author the Federal ReLeaf U&CF program for NY State; implement /chair the program in NYC;   • author Recommendations for an Urban Forest Management Plan;   • coordinate international and local educational conferences, seminars and workshops for       professionals and concerned citizens;   • develop/ initiate informed stewardship/ citizen science opportunities for concerned NY       residents, e.g. the Asian Longhorned Beetle NYC Public Outreach program (Federally-funded). I became a Certified Arborist in 1996, working as a Consulting Arborist, specializing in reviewing/ editing/ authoring Tree/ Landscape Preservation/ Protection specifications for large public infrastructure projects, developing a “Building WITH Trees” approach to design and build. I co-organized and chaired NYC Root Zone, a 501-c-3, authoring publications and providing informal educational opportunities for landscape professionals. I am now semi-retired, living in Luzern Switzerland and working to enhance and advance European Urban Forestry through    • contributions to COST projects;   • the Swiss federally funded Climate Change Adaptation project;   • implementation of i-Tree as an i-Tree team affiliate member;   • European Forum on Urban Forestry steering committee membership.

Great comments regarding ethics and tree crews in the private realm. Doesn't generally get discussed.
