The conference has been hailed as second largest ever in the UK. 

As with the TPBE I conference three years ago, the opening session also featured a short video message of support from HRH The Prince of Wales.

Urging better collaboration between disciplines, he said: "One of the main reasons for calling these Trees, People and the Built Environment conferences is the potential synergies and fresh initiatives that can come out of the exchange of ideas and practice between all the relevant professionals."

A full write-up of the conference will appear in the 18 April edition of Horticulture Week
