The focus of this year’s Conference takes us back to the heart of arboriculture – managing trees and tree populations, from the macro to the micro, through canopy and crown. It’s a topic which impacts on all professionals involved in the tree care industry. From those dealing with policy at local, regional, national or global levels, or working on individual trees as a climbing arborist, to consultants, specifiers and practitioners. 

The schedule for the UK’s biggest Arboriculture Conference includes 13 prominent international speakers who, alongside UK based experts, will take us on an unparalleled exploration of the science of crown management. 

Returning to the University of Exeter, the landmark event provides an engaging programme of carefully selected experts, with pioneering new perspectives, who will challenge current working practices and take our knowledge and understanding to new levels. 

An enlightened approach to the Urban Forest
Under the four broad topic areas of ‘Natural function’, ‘Governance, guidance and application’, ‘Pruning methodologies’ and ‘Challenging current practice’, the Conference will explore the latest understanding, theories, technologies and procedures while taking an honest look at past and present practices in order to help drive the industry towards a more enlightened approach to our day-to day relationship with the urban forest. The event will culminate with four in-depth practical workshop sessions on the final day, which include the legendary University of Florida Professor Ed Gilman.
