BOOKING OPEN: Trees and Development – Tree Forum at Royal Botanic Garden Edinburgh


Join us on Tuesday 22nd October at RBGE.

The Royal Botanic Garden Edinburgh has a world class collection of trees. Strategic curation of this exciting dynamic collection to create a garden to engage and delight visitors as well as meeting our scientific, conservation and education requirements is delivered by a dedicated team of horticulturalists, scientists and arborists. We will tour the collection to evaluate recent plantings, new introductions, tree risk management and conservation of the heritage collection. We will look at how new buildings in the garden have been sited, planned and constructed with consideration to the retention of mature trees.

This is a fantastic opportunity to:

  • Evaluate the success of tree protection methods during development.
  • Compare and contrast planting schemes.
  • Discuss tree care, tree health and tree management with the RBGE team and colleagues from across PlantNetwork.

The draft programme (subject to change) is available below.

Cost: varies from £25 for students, £40 for members and £60 for non-members. Includes lunch and refreshments.

Booking is NOW OPEN and will close on 15th October 2019.
