With a grounding in practical conservation, habitat management, and environmental protection, Bryan has a wealth of experience in third sector, Environment Agency, and Local Authority.
His recent focus has been on development of a woodland strategy for Greater Manchester, modelling the benefits and need for tree-related ecosystem services, and developing opportunities for creating new, functional green infrastructure in the urban environment.
