Mattheck will be heading to the UK for three events in May, during which he will provide an update of visual tree assessment methods. He will also consider recent verdicts and discuss legal points regarding tree diagnosis before introducing some of his latest research.
Other topics covered will include the assessment of the integrity of the attachment of dead branches where these are retained for ecological reasons and a review of Massaria-like sac fungi. New tree diagnosis tools will be introduced and first field trials reported.
Symbiosis Consulting is hosting events in Hatfield, Hertfordshire, on 18 May and at Leicester Racecourse on 19 May. Mattheck will also deliver a presentation in Dunkeld for the Arboricultural Association's Scottish branch on 21 May.
Following the recent death of former Nature First managing director Martin Bromage during his attempt to make a solo microlight flight from the UK to Australia to raise funds for Help for Heroes, a proportion of any profits generated from the Symbiosis seminars will be donated to the charity.
