Rob Goodsell


Rob Goodsell has been working for CAT for eleven years.


Rob is our main tutor on our Sustainable Woodland Management course, amongst others.


His love of and connection to nature in part comes from living in Canada’s wilds as a child.


Rob has been teaching for seventeen years both in classrooms and the outdoors.  He is currently working four woodlands of differing natures but to sustainable management principles focusing on the relationship between conservation, resilience, human interaction and economic realities.


Rob teaches on the woodland based courses at CAT and has a particular interest in Low Impact Silviculture Systems (LISS) and the link between our zero carbon future and land use.


At the moment Rob is leading a trail construction project through some sensitive habitat around CAT’s quarry showcasing sustainable land use practices and CAT’s relationship with nature.
