This NZ Arb Award was established in 1993. The Award is to elevate and recognise high standards of practice in Arboriculture, including tree raising, tree health and management, and amenity tree protection or design. The recipient will have demonstrated exceptional management of trees, whether functional or aesthetic in any stage of development.
The NZ Arb have named this award after well-known, Nelson-based Landscape Architect Ron Flook for his tireless
contribution to Arboriculture in New Zealand through the Notable Trees Scheme and the development of the Standard Tree Evaluation Method (STEM). The award also recognises the standard of his professional work and the way he used trees as significant features in his landscape designs.
2015 is the 21st year that the NZ Arb Ronald Flook Award is to be presented. The successful nominee receives the gift of a bone carving and loan of the trophy for one year, together with a cheque for $500.
Nominations are to be received before 30th August 2015 and should be sent to:
