Arboricultural Association exhibit at Hampton Court for first time

The Arboricultural Association will be pursuing a programme of promoting arboriculture to domestic consumers, when it takes a display stand at the Hampton Court Palace Flower Show for the first time this year.

The association hopes to use the stand to educate home-owners about the importance of caring for trees. Arborists on the stand will be available to discuss such topics as tree care, climate change, and problems of trees in a built environment.

Arboricultural Association chair Nick Eden said: ‘We want consumers to understand why trees are important and why they need skilled and credible people to do any work on them.’

Eden also pointed out that that from this autumn the Arboricultural Association will be running courses aimed at the general public. These will include residential weekend courses held in conjunction with the National Network of Field Studies Centres as well as evening courses held at regional centres.
