Treescape Conference 2021Bringing the future of trees, woodlands and forests into focus

7th – 9th of July 2021 

Coronavirus (covid-19) update 

The Treescapes2020 conference has been postponed to 2021.

We would like to thank all our attendees and presenters for their patience while we addressed this situation. This was a difficult decision for the organising committee and we sincerely apologise for any inconvenience caused to those who had planned to attend the event, but the welfare of our attendees is paramount.

We aim to retain as much of our provisional 2020 programme and invited speakers to 2021 as possible. We will be in touch with accepted presenters and ticket purchasers shortly with more information. If you have any queries, please do not hesitate to get in touch.

We look forward to seeing you in summer 2021 to discuss all things treescapes!



Treescapes2021 is a unique event being led by early career researchers from a number of UK universities and disciplines to stimulate conversations between the research and woodland practitioner communities. We aim to capture the priorities and concerns of stakeholders and to influence future research agendas and practices.

Our national treescapes are facing immense challenges from climate change, pests and diseases. Research shapes our understanding and provides insights that can inform best practices - it underpins action, but it is not action. Its real-world impact relies on swift inclusion into policy and adoption by managers and practitioners. 

This conference is for all those carrying out research allied to forestry, woodland, urban and other treescapes, for those managing woods and trees and for those interested in learning about the latest forestry and forestry-related research.

The conference will be hosted online and take place during the 7th, 8th and 9th of July 2021.
