Gristwood & Toms hosts free arboriculture seminar

A free seminar hosted by Gristwood & Toms is to focus on a brighter future for forestry.

The International Society of Arboriculture event will be held at Gristwood and Toms, Harris Lane, Shenley, Herts, WD7 9EG, on April 19 from 10am.

Speakers include:

Alexia Tamblyn - Treeconomics
Title: Measuring to Manage Torbay’s Urban Forest
In 2010 Torbay carried out a pilot of the i-Tree Eco system. The survey generated some interest. However, going forward, it’s the urban forest structure, composition and form data that will provide the real benefit in its future management. After all if you can't measure your resource how can it be managed?  Alexia will explain how the Eco data can be used to look at strategic forest management ensuring that Torbay's urban forest can continue to deliver benefits in the future.

Jim C Smith – Forestry Commission Urban Forestry Advisor
Title: Preparing a Tree and Woodland Strategy
The presentation will look at the Mayor of London's Supplementary Planning Guidance on preparing a Tree and Woodland Strategy. It will cover key points that Tree Officer's tasked with producing a tree and woodland strategy should cover together with some of the advantages of having one in place and how this can improve the effectiveness of local authority policies.

Phil Wade – Director Sorbus International
Title: The new IML Resi-PD micro-drill: Well worth the wait!
The PD is the most advanced & innovative micro-drill ever produced, created using all the knowledge & experience IML has gained over 30 years. Capable of drilling at 5 times faster than previous devices the PD also has a unique dual motor technology for tree inspection that significantly improves sensitivity by virtually reducing the effect of frictional drag on the drilling needle. During the practical demonstration delegates will be encouraged to try the PD for themselves.
