Tree Disease Workshop

Wednesday 23rd May at Mortimer Park, Kingsland, Herefordshire

Britain’s trees, woodlands and gardens have been under attack before, but new and more sinister diseases are threatening the existence of some of our most familiar and best loved trees. Heartwoods invites you to a workshop to find out about the latest research in how to manage this urgent problem. You will learn how to recognise a variety of tree diseases and how to manage them to reduce losses, and contact and prevent their spread.
A leading professional from Forest Research will be looking at current concerns and future threats, covering, oak declines, phytophthora diseases, red-band needle blight, bleeding cankers, and likely new diseases that may arrive in the UK.
FERA will be providing a detailed insight into what we have learned from the impact of phytophthora ramorum in the South-West and Wales and what the implications are for the West Midlands. The workshop includes indoor presentations followed by tours of local woodlands to see trees and plants where disease is now evident.

Event costs £10.00 (which includes lunch and refreshments) and is aimed at those employed within the woodland industry and woodland owners within the West Midlands region.
