About George E. Brown

George E. Brown (1917-1980) earned his diploma in horticulture at the Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew. He returned to Kew in 1956 as an assistant curator. A founding member of the Arboricultural Association, he soon became a recognized authority on trees and shrubs. Tony Kirkham is the Head of the Arboretum and Horticultural Services at the Royal Botanic Garden, Kew, where he cares for and develops 10,000 woody trees in the collection. Tony began working with trees as a forestry apprentice in Surrey, and then as a commercial tree surgeon in West Germany. He earned a diploma in horticulture from the Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew, and then proceeded to spend the next 30 years of his life working at the gardens. Now he lectures internationally, runs workshops, and publishes papers on a wide range of subjects. He has taken numerous plant-collecting trips across Asia, and many trees now growing in the Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew originated from seeds obtained on those trips. In his spare time, Tony enjoys fly fishing and hunting. He is married with two children and lives in London.
