Tree health conference – Where do we go from here?

Friday 8 March 2013

What was the event?

Ash dieback (Chalara fraxinea) has been confirmed in the wider environment within the Chilterns area. In addition, Oak Processionary Moth, Acute Oak Decline and other pests, diseases and climate change have the potential to make a significant impact on the trees and woodlands of the Chilterns and surrounding areas in terms of ecology, landscape and management.

Trees and woodlands are a vital part of our landscape, ecology and economy. Thuis conference presented the latest information and invited you to work with us, the CLA, NFU, CONFOR, ICF, RFS, Arboricultural Association and others to identify how, together, we can increase resilience to maintain and enhance our trees and woodlands for the future.

Expert presenters included:

  • Pathology: Dr Joan Webber, Forest Research, Principal Pathologist
  • Silviculture: Dr Gary Kerr, Forest Research, Principal Silviculturist
