As an arborist at Delta Dunedin, Rimu has been with Thoughtplanters since the middle of 2020. He brings over 15 years of arboriculture experience to his role, having worked in the amenity and utility sectors. Also, he has a national certificate in adult education, and he’s the primary ITO (Industry Training Organisations) workplace assessor.
In his work role, Rimu tries to encourage a relaxed and inclusive learning environment. He enjoys the variety his job brings him and that he gets to meet people and be involved in the horticulture industry. Outside of work, he spends time working on his sustainable lifestyle property – growing trees, fungi, veggies and looking after his chickens.
