Tree seminar to explore key management issues

Treework Environmental Practice has got together with Kew, English Heritage, Natural England, CABE Space, the Arboricultural Association and the Institute of Chartered Foresters to run a seminar on managing trees in avenues, alleyways and boulevards.

Managing director Neville Fay said up to 150 people interested in landscape and trees were expected at the event, to be held at Kew on 24 June. "We want to highlight the theme of roadside trees and the design side bringing together the challenges faced by urban forestry managers and highway managers," he said.

"The modern challenge is how to continue their historic legacy and create new avenues to secure this essential green infrastructure for future generations.

"This conference has urban and rural relevance, appealing to specialists and non-specialists with interests in landscape and trees. It will explore conservation, psychological and sociological perspectives, including the utilitarian, historic, biodiversity and aesthetic considerations that inform policy and practice."

Delegates are invited to contribute to the debate by bringing key concerns and suggestions for policy and management in challenging economic and climatic times.
