The AA’s 47th National Amenity Arboriculture Conference
“Managing the Urban Forest”
8 – 11 September 2013, Exeter University
This Year’s Theme: ‘Managing the Urban Forest’
The urban forest provides countless benefits to the population at large; attractive landscapes and streetscapes, screening, recreational and social space and potential health and well-being. As tree professionals and practitioners there is a constant need to remain educated, informed and connected to the latest thinking, research and opportunities.
The AA 47th Annual conference draws together five key themes to provide you with the knowledge and opportunities to professionally and personally develop your understanding of management issues within the context of the Urban Forest.
Pests and Diseases
Urban Forestry and Green Infrastructure
Tree Risk Management
Ancient and Heritage Trees
Featuring 29 speakers from the UK, Europe, US and Australia, this year’s event promises to attract a record number of attendees for the three days of conference sessions. Delegates will also enjoy activities and networking opportunities beyond the core conference programme:
Meet friends and colleagues from the sector
Conference Dinner, Tuesday 10th, 8.00pm – Speaker Phillip Van Wassenaer
Sunday Field trip
Simple to book, accommodation provided in ticket price
Peter Holloway, Chairman of the Arboricultural Association comments on the 2013 Arb conference.
This year the Arb conference is presenting a really impressive line up of international speakers in our most popular venue at Exeter University. I really don’t recall seeing such an extensive range of topics being presented by such highly qualified speakers – there’s going to be real breadth and depth to all of the sessions
Stay in touch!
We’ll be updating this page with a lot more information about the conference over the coming weeks; the full session programme, speaker biographies and details of exhibitors and social events.
But, most importantly we’ll shortly be sending out delegate packs to members with full details of how to book your place and accommodation. Downloadable conference brochures and booking forms will also be available for non-members.
We look forward to seeing you in September!
