Forestry Commission publishes key research papers

Papers from the Institute of Chartered Foresters' Trees, People and Built Environment international urban tree research conference - held in Birmingham last year - have been published by the Forestry Commission.

Speakers from around the world spoke at the event, providing advice on topics such as urban regeneration and how urban trees can improve lives, add value to property, and be successfully integrated into the urban environment.

The conference chair, Dr Mark Johnston, research fellow of aboriculture and urban forestry at Myerscough College, said: "As a record of cutting-edge research and innovative practice about urban trees, I’m confident that these conference proceedings will be widely read for many years to come and that the readership will include both natural and built environment specialists."

A ICF statement said the published proceedings were "set to become a legacy of this landmark event and the on-going drive to build greater cross-industry understanding and foster closer working relationships within the urban environment sector".

The collection of 20 papers from the Institute of Chartered Foresters' Trees, People and Built Environment international urban tree research conference, including contributions from research scientists and practitioners, can be downloaded from the Forestry Commission library or from the ICF website (www.charteredforesters.org/proceedings2011/).

Battery blowers Reviewed: will battery blowers go the distance?

Fed up of having to start and restart blowers? Then there is the refuelling, mixing the two-stroke and carrying a spare can. Once running, emissions can be unpleasant and noise from a petrol engine demands earmuffs be worn. An alternative is battery power.
