Tree architecture two-day training course – assessment to aid veteran tree management

This course is now full. Due to popular demand we will run the course again at the same venue on 7 and 8 November. Click here for details.

This two-day course, delivered by Tom Joye of Inverde (Belgium), is aimed at professionals wanting to improve their knowledge of tree architecture and how this can be used as a tool during veteran tree management.

Tree architecture is not a new concept, however unfortunately for tree managers in the UK most tree architecture literature is published in French due to the main scientists being French or Canadian. This course aims to introduce these concepts allowing tree managers to make informed management decisions.
