Sunday 20 – Wednesday 23
September 2015

THE UNIVERSITY OF WARWICK, COVENTRY CV4 7AL

This year the Arboricultural Association’s Amenity Conference returns to the Arts Centre at the University of Warwick, where we have had some of our most successful events – in 2007 and 2011. The university is located in the centre of the country with easy transport links and free parking on site – delegates can arrive, relax and enjoy! The comfortable residential accommodation is close to the Arts Centre and provides everything you need to make the most of your conference experience.

In three days of lectures you will be able to explore a range of crucial topics, taking forward ideas from last year’s event and other important seminars and conferences in the UK and abroad. In each of the five themed sessions, we aim to structure your experience in a seamless and natural progression from strategic and political thinking, through key industry figures’ insights and ground-breaking research, to practical applications and technical solutions that you can add to your arboricultural toolbox.

Conference themes

  • Trees in places where people live – Urban forest
  • Tree health
  • The rooting environment
  • Management by design – SUDS and beyond
