Tree Surgery: Spent six weeks in Aberdeenshire learning a new trade. Duties involved were mostly heavy lifting, lifting sections of trees and disposing of brushwood correctly, and clearing up our place of work at the end of the day. This job really helped hone team skills and really put into perspective just how important communication is, especially in a dangerous job.
