Head Forester [1985-]
Chris is Hooke Park’s Head Forester and longest serving member of staff. He began working in Hooke for the Parnham Trust around 1986 helping then forester Andrew Poore to source trees for the Prototype House. Chris took over the reigns as Head Forester in the mid 90s and stayed on when the Architectural Association took over the estate in 2002. Providing the raw material for each project, he knows the woodland and its relationship to each building intimately.
