Treescapes2020 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 take place on the 1st and 2nd of July 2020 at the University of Birmingham.
