Even as an 11 year old, Hamish Mitchell loved working in the garden. After a brief stint as a 'terrible' landscaper, Hamish found his feet taking care of the gardens at Government House in Canberra, followed by a tenure at Parliament House as the head horticulturist. Today, Hamish runs Speciality Trees, one of the leading suppliers of advanced and semi-advanced trees to landscapers. He talks to Chris and Tyson about the Australian Tree Standard (AS 2303:2018), the importance of investing in new talent in the horticulture industry, how climate change might influence tree choices in the future, and tips for ensuring tree planting success.
