Ancient Tree Forum Summer Conference Hereford 28-29 June 2018
The annual ATF summer conference took place at the Courtyard in Hereford in June this year. The event was, again, sold out with over 100 people attending each day. We had wonderful and informative presentations on the remarkable trees of Hereford, predicting the distribution of ancient trees in the UK, retrenchment pruning of lapsed pollards, tree architecture, and many more. All the presentations were well received and created a great deal of discussion. Thank you to our speakers Keith Alexander, Aljos Farjon, Frits Gielissen, Megan Gimber, Victoria Granger, Reg Harris, Kylie Harrison Mellor, Rob Jarman, Tom Joye, David Lovelace, Archie Miles, Russell Miller and Ian Rotherham for providing such informative and thought provoking talks.

Thank you to our guides Iain Carter, Lu Mason, Jeremy Evans, Brian Jones, Bob Silverwood, Alice James, Archie Miles, Jerry Ross, Robin Moseley and David Lovelace, as well as our hosts for permitting access..
