Trees, People and the Built Environment is back!

Following on from the highly successful event in 2011, the international urban trees research conference Trees, People and the Built Environment returns to Birmingham in 2014.
Again hosted by the ICF as its National Conference 2014, Trees, People and the Built Environment II continues its influential pan-industry partnership initiative between over 20 organisations representing professionals within the greenspace and built environment sectors. A Conference Steering Group, drawn from this partnership, will guide the programme content and format. 

Conference Aims

Urban trees and woodlands are essential elements of our green infrastructure and play a vital role in promoting liveable and sustainable towns and cities. The urban forest can have numerous environmental, economic and social benefits, contributing enormously to the health and welfare of everyone who lives and works in urban areas.
