New award is saw subject at Bicton
A new award is to be presented to Bicton College students showing flair in their studies of arboriculture and woodland management.
Students with hands-on skills in managing trees and woodlands are to be recognised by Bicton College thanks to the launch of a new award.
The Royal Forestry Society (RFS) Silky Fox Handsaws awards will be presented to ‘outstanding’ students who show strong practical arboriculture or woodland management flair in areas such as such as pruning, planting, establishment and felling.
The awards, presented in the summer, include a Silky Gomtaro 300mm pruning saw together with a year’s membership to the Royal Forestry Society.
Nobby Clarke, Bicton College senior lecturer in arboriculture, said: “This is a fantastic prize for our students.

“To ensure they are able to fully exploit the skills they learn here, it is vital they have access to both leading brand tools and the professional support of an industry leading body.
“To be able to leave here with a Silky Saw and membership of the RFS is a real motivator for our students and real feather in the successful students’ cap.”
