Members to choose next winner
Deadline: Friday 19th January 2024
As we mentioned in the last issue, this year we thought we would open the nomination process for the Tom Hall Literary Award to all members of the Scotland Branch.
In December, Scotland Branch members will be sent an email asking for their nomination for the article from 2023 Scotland sections of the ARB Magazine that they feel has best contributed to our understanding of arboriculture in Scotland.
The author of the article that receives the most votes will receive the award at the Scotland Branch AGM in 2024.
The annual Tom Hall Literary Award was set up in memory to Dr Tom Hall and to recognise writing that contributes to our understanding of arboriculture in Scotland.
Dr Hall was a Scottish arborist who will be well known to older members of the Association. He was widely regarded within the industry as one of the pioneers of progressing arboricultural knowledge, working alongside other pioneers in the field such as Dr Alex Shigo. He was the editor of the Arboricultural Journal, a role he carried out for 24 years, up to 1997. In 2013 after his death his wide-ranging collection of books and journals on arboriculture was bequeathed to the Association. The collection has been catalogued for the exclusive use of Association members. If you wish to view the collection this can be arranged by contacting email@example.com by Friday 19th January.
This article was taken from Issue 203 Winter 2023 of the ARB Magazine, which is available to view free to members by simply logging in to the website and viewing your profile area.
