This week, I am joined by Dr. Andrew Hirons, senior lecturer in Arboriculture at Myerscough College (UK), to discuss his career journey from tree climbing arborist to arboriculture lecturer, his passion for tree biology (and why we need it to save urban trees), and his work on using IoT sensor technologies, from soil moisture to sap flow, to better manage the urban forest.
