International Urban Trees Research Conference takes place in Birmingham in April
The Trees, People and the Built Environment 3 conference (TPBE3) will focus on the greater integration of trees into our transport systems and the benefits they have on human health. By looking at success stories from around the world, experts will demonstrate how innovative planning focused on greenspace in our cities can improve traffic infrastructure and sustain the health of communities and people.
Speakers include Dr Ian Buchanan, Manager of Natural Heritage and Forestry for the Regional Municipality of York, Canada, who said, ‘The integration of trees into large-scale capital road projects is vital but such works have space demands and budget priorities which are often in conflict’.
Also speaking are James Urban of Urban Trees and Soils, USA, Dr Ann Marie Connolly from Public Health England, and Peter Duinker from Dalhousie University, Canada.
TPBE3 is hosted and organised by the Institute of Chartered Foresters (ICF) on behalf of a group of partner organisations. Find out more and book here.
