How Trees Work and the Role of Trees in the Urban Environment is the subject of a seminar to be given by Dr Roland Ennos at the headquarters of Barcham Trees, Ely, Cambridgeshire, on 12 May.
A lecturer and research scientist in biomechanics at the University of Manchester, Roland Ennos will discuss the mechanics and hydraulics of trees in relation to arborists and look at what is known about and current research into the role of trees in towns and cities.
The event for tree care professionals, which runs from 9.30am to 4pm, is free of charge, including a complimentary breakfast on arrival and lunch.
Places — which are limited — will be allocated on a first come, first served basis. To reserve a place contact Barcham's Keith Sacre by e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org or telephone 01353 720748.
