Marking International Women's Day this episode hears from arborist and World Champion tree climber, Jo Hedger.
One of still relatively few women in the sector, she talks about the myriad challenges of running a business -Arbor Venture Tree Care - and avoiding getting trapped in the office.
But from early in her career, Hedger found a passion and skill for climbing trees and is now a 6-times European and 5-times World champion.
"It's really benefited myself as an arborist", she says.
"The whole reason for the competition originally was to educate the public on what an arborist is.
"If you know nothing about climbing and you were just spectating, they are fascinating because you have no idea that people can move that freely through the trees."
