A Call for Papers for the upcoming ‘Trees, People and the Built Environment’ – Urban Tree Research Conference, to be held in Birmingham, UK to be held on 13-14 April 2011 is currently underway.
The upcoming event is being hosted by the Institute of Chartered Foresters and is supported by a wide range of UK professional bodies and agencies in the natural and built environment sector. The conference organizers are hoping to attract a wide range of high quality papers from UK and international researchers covering a range of topics relating to trees, people and the built environment.The main aims of this research conference on urban trees are to identify: 1.) Completed research that remains relevant, 2.) Research being undertaken currently, and 3.) Gaps in research where future efforts need to be focused.
Two types of papers will be included in the conference program: 1.) Papers presenting original research in a specific subject area 2.) Papers reviewing existing and ongoing research in a broad subject area (such as tree pathology, tree establishment, community involvement, trees and urban design, urban forest mapping, biodiversity, veteran trees, etc.).
Abstract submissions and inquires should be directed to: Dr Mark Johnston, Myerscough College
