Brought to you by PlantNetwork and the Chartered Institute of Horticulture, this event at the Yorkshire Arboretum will focus on trees in designed landscapes, specifically the selection, sourcing and establishment of healthy trees. We will look at the big issues facing tree health in the UK with an update on pest and diseases, look at how you can source healthy new tree stock, biosecurity and quarantine measures when introducing new stock to your site and monitoring for problems once planted out, including damage by invasive mammals.
It isn’t just about talks. There will be a workshop to share ideas on simple biosecurity measures and a walk around the Yorkshire Arboretum to identify pest and disease issues. So with a great mix of speakers from Fera Science, the Plant Healthy Certification Scheme, Royal Horticultural Society, Royal Botanic Gardens Kew and Yorkshire Arboretum, plus practical sessions and networking opportunities, this event is ideally suited to anyone interested in or working with trees in the designed landscape.
