Step outside and into a career in the arboriculture and horticulture industry with Interlink.
Horticulturalists use their botanical knowledge for the propagation, preservation and protection of plants. They design landscapes, manage soil and turf and control weed and pest infestations in the outdoor environment.
Arborists assess, maintain and care for trees. They propagate and plant, using their knowledge of tree species and the local environment, to identify which trees will thrive in the surroundings.
