The Tree Conference 2018

Following a popular preliminary event in Glastonbury last year, we’re delighted that the Tree Conference 2018 is moving to the Merlin Theatre. It’s a one day event for all tree lovers.

Now a project of the International Tree Foundation, the Conference explores citizen-led reforestation, support for ancient forests and the wider re-greening our Earth.

Confirmed speakers include Isabella Tree (author of Wilding), Dr Martin Bidartondo (Imperial College London & Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew), Frome’s own Peter Macfadyen, Mary Reynolds Thompson (author of Rewilding the Soul), Maria Gomez, Julian Height and others.

The event will showcase practical tree projects, scientific research, education initiatives, artists, political debate and will provide a vibrant networking hub for planting in Somerset and beyond.

Topics include:
• Forest Defenders in UK cities and primary Tropical and Boreal forests.
• Articulating the consciousness in ancient forests and legislating to protect it.
• Education, grants, agroforestry, orchards, HS2, G5, riverways and rail network tree removal.
