- Wednesday 22 April - Thursday 23 April 2020
Every three years, the Institute of Chartered Foresters partners with academic institutions and chartered institutes to host an international cross-discipline conference on urban greenspace.
The conference – Trees, People and the Built Environment – provides a platform for the UK and international researchers and practitioners to showcase work in these areas and helps both built and natural environment professionals turn this research into action on the ground.
Themes include green innovation in infrastructure, tree value and natural capital, governance and planning, and collaboration as being key to achieving change.
The conference offers an opportunity to understand the benefits of urban trees, network with relevant professionals, to challenge experts and join the conversation about the role of trees in our urban environments.
Speakers include Forest Research’s Dr Bianca Ambrose-Oji who will present on ‘awareness, aspiration and action for resilient urban treescapes: lessons from the governance and management of tree pests and diseases in England’.
Forest Research will also have a stand at the conference where we will update you on our research and services and take your questions relating to trees and urban environments. We look forward to meeting you during the conference!
