University of Birmingham, Edgebaston- 2-3rd April 2014
What is the event?
Following on from the highly successful event in 2011, the international urban trees research conference Trees, People and the Built Environment returns to Birmingham in 2014 even bigger and better than before.
Again hosted by the ICF as its National Conference 2014, Trees, People and the Built Environment II continues its influential pan-industry partnership initiative between over 20 organisations representing professionals within the greenspace and built environment sectors.
Dr Helen McKay from Forest Research will be chairing a session and Dr Anna Lawrence, Dr Kieron Doick, and Heather Rumble will all be presenting papers.
Forest Research will also be joining colleagues from Forestry Commission in a display area where you can find out more about our work in this, and other, areas.
Who is the event suitable for?
Urban trees and woodlands are now essential elements of our green infrastructure through the vital roles they play in promoting liveable and sustainable towns and cities. We know that the urban forest has numerous environmental, economic and social benefits, and that it can contribute enormously to the health and welfare of all those who live and work in urban areas.
Trees, People and the Built Environment II provides a unique forum where over 400 key professionals from across the globe will come together to discuss common concerns, collaborate, share knowledge and work together for a greener and more sustainable future. It is therefore clear why you should attend. This conference will be of interest to all those involved with urban trees.
