The Trees, People and the Built Environment conference brings together experts from across the globe to address issues such as community engagement and the expansion of green networks, as well as the economic value of urban trees and their successful integration in to the built environment.

The two-day event, being held in Birmingham on 13-14 April, is a rare opportunity for forward-thinking professionals in urban landscapes and the built environment to come together and plan a sustainable future.

Key speakers will include Cecil Konijnendijk who one is one of the leading figures on urban forestry in Europe, and Peter Head who is expert adviser to the Singapore Government on Green Buildings and Infrastructure and also on the advisory panel for the World Future Council.

 Mark Johnston, Conference Chair of Trees People and Built Environment, said: "For far too long the tree world has been talking to itself about issues that affect trees and the Built Environment.  This conference will reach out to people in both the natural and built environment sectors – stressing the need for all their expertise."
