Tree Surgery

New for 2019

New for 2019

woodland trustWe welcome the Woodland Trust and the brand new feature, the Tree Surgery.

Set amongst a collection of native woodland trees, the UK’s largest woodland conservation charity will have their own dedicated area at the Show. With talks every day from experts, as well as one to ones where you can come and chat about all manner of tree related queries, the Woodland Trust team are on hand to help. 

Whether you’ve got a burning question about tree disease and pests, want to know a little bit more about bio security or simply need a steer on the best trees for all manner of gardens, someone will be able to help. The tree experts will be leaving their usual jobs in conservation and as woodland site and estate managers for the Show to make sure you get the advice you need.

The membership team will also be there to explain more about the work of the Woodland Trust, why we all need trees and how you can help create a UK rich in native trees and woodlands by increasing the number of trees in the ground. So make sure to come along to hear a talk and have your questions answered!
