ATF Summer Conference 2018
The 2018 conference will follow the same two-day format as previous events, with indoor presentations from expert speakers in the morning, and visits to veteran tree sites in the afternoons. There will also be plenty of opportunities to network with a wide range of people interested in the ecology and management of ancient and veteran trees.
Field events will include a visit to Kentchurch Park, where the deer park is being restored under Higher Level Stewardship, and ancient and other veteran trees include the the 12 and a half meter girth Jack of Kent oak. Other afternoon destinations have yet to be confirmed but are likely to include wood pasture and farmland sites.
The morning indoor sessions will take place at the Courtyard Theatre in Hereford, and the ATF would be keen to hear from those interested in making a veteran-tree related presentation at the conference. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org with details of your proposed talk.
Further details of the event will be available in due course, and bookings will open in early 2018.
