Tree pests and diseases, crisis and responses PDF
On 7 November 2012 the Society held a national conference in the Jodrell Lecture Theatre at the Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew, on some of the threats facing trees not only in the United Kingdom but throughout the temperate world. Over 100 people attended, many from national organisations, local authorities and private gardens, some having travelled from the continent. Speakers presented results of the latest research into the causes and impacts of tree health problems and potential solutions. SARA OLDFIELD summarises in this article the information from the excellent presentations and the lively discussions at the conference.
