The Arboricultural Association’s
53rd Annual Amenity Conference
Focussing on the heart of arboriculture
This year’s Conference focussed on the heart of arboriculture – managing trees and tree populations, from the macro to the micro, through canopy and crown.
Whether you are dealing with policy at local, regional, national or global level, or working on individual trees as a climbing arborist, consultant, specifier or practitioner, the conference presented an engaging programme of international and local speakers that took delegates knowledge and understanding to new levels.
Under the four broad topic areas of ‘Natural function’, ‘Governance, guidance and application’, ‘Pruning methodologies’ and ‘Challenging current practice’, our speakers explored the topics in depth with 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.
