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 course aims to introduce these concepts allowing tree managers to make informed management decisions.

ATF East Anglia visit to Hatfield Forest

Hatfield Forest, Reg Harris

 

Hatfield Forest, in Essex, is well known as one of the top sites in the UK for ancient trees, and is unique because it is the best surviving example in the world of an almost complete royal hunting forest.

The National Trust has been looking after the site since the 1920’s, and it is home to over 3,500 species of wildlife.  For the last 20 years, the Trust has been carrying out an extensive and experimental pruning programme to manage the ancient trees.
