Location: Stamford, Lincolnshire

 by Peter Glassey

Burghley Park

This event is now full. Please email admin@ancienttreeforum.co.uk if you wish to be put on the reserve list.

The gardens and parkland at Burghley were largely designed by Capability Brown in the 18th century, and there will be an opportunity to explore his legacy during this 300th centenary year.

Amongst the technical topics we will be discussing is the use of treatments to relieve compaction, and Nev Fay of Treework Environmental Practice will be talking about his treatment trials.

We will also be considering ‘Tree Ecosystem Areas’, looking at the results of root radar exploration of a mature oak with Sharon Hosegood, and discussing best practice for managing ancient and other veteran trees in high use areas or during events.

There is no charge from the ATF to book a place, but please note that there will be a £5 charge made by the estate which will be payable on the day. Timings and directions will be confirmed by email by Monday 29 February.

The ATF board meeting will be held on the previous day (Wednesday 9 March), with an open session from 11am to mid-afternoon.
