FOR OVER 22 years, Mike Ford, founder and former chairman of Epsom and Ewell Tree Advisory Board (EETAB) worked to secure a leafy future for Epsom and Ewell Borough. His passion for trees inspired enthusiasm among residents and community groups while behind the scenes he was working tirelessly to secure approvals from Surrey County Council highway engineers and forging close working relationships with the Borough Council.
Trees lend grace and character to our urban environment. Mike’s decades of dedication has left a living legacy of trees on our residential roads and in community areas for all to enjoy.
