AA Cornwall Branch Autumn Seminar 20th November

Recommended Posts

Hello To all our Cornwall Arbs (and any interested),


Just wanted to make sure no one misses out on this one, tickets are selling fast and the Cornwall Branch has put on some fantastic events over the past 2 years.


Cornwall Branch has announced an exciting line-up for its 2018 Autumn Seminar at the Waterside Resort in Bodmin on Tuesday 20th November.

Featuring talks from The Forestry Commission (Pests & Diseases), Cornwall Council, Paul Diamond (Urban Trees and Wildlife), Cornwall Wildlife Trust and Jeremy Barrell delivering a new presentation on Highway Tree Inspections for the first time.


Tickets from £30 - BOOKING: https://www.trees.org.uk/Training-And-Events/Course-Detail?id=A352978D-DF9B-4490-8225-D1AE6068BEA1

Jeremy Barrell – Highway tree inspections; are you on the right side of the law?
Forestry Commission Tree Health Team – Learning what to look out for with the latest P&D
Cornwall Council – What’s new at County level
Paul Diamond – Informed tree selections for local wildlife
Cornwall Wildlife Trust – The Cornwall Beaver reestablishment project and the impact of Beaver populations on woodland

The Forestry Commission will be updating us with latest situation in the world of Pests and Diseases and explaining what we can all do on a personal and professional level to help. There have been a lot of developments this year, from the spread of Oak Processionary Moth to the release of detailed industry guidance on the application of biosecurity practices.

Jeremy Barrell will present a summary on the current state of the nation in respect of highway tree inspections and offer his interpretation of what the standard of duty of care is likely to look like into 2019, and beyond. Jeremy has been involved in six of the 11 civil cases relating to harm arising from tree failures that have resulted in written judgments in the last two decades.

Cornwall Council will be updating us on what’s new at County level, with the latest news around trees and development.

Paul Diamond of Ecological Surveys will be presenting key takeaways from his fascinating research into tree and wildlife associations. His project will help to determine the impact on our urban habitats if we continue to plant exotic trees.

Finally, the Cornwall Wildlife Trust will be telling us about their work in bringing Beavers back to Cornwall. The first beavers in over 400 years were born in June 2018. This exciting project has lots of ecological implications not least on the surrounding woodland and as tree care professionals it is a subject that we should be aware of.
