Tree Morphology

Principles of growth, form & function; diagnostics & management

Venue: University of West England, St Matthias Campus, Bristol

Date: 15th June 2007


A one-day Treework Environmental Practice seminar, in partnership with the Arboricultural Association

In 2006, Treework Environmental Practice launched its Tree Morphology theme with an inspiring, in-depth two-day seminar. Then in 2007 Treework Environmental Practice provided a unique opportunity to experience two exceptional scientists in this field. Their understanding and interpretation of patterns of tree growth has the capacity to profoundly influence our views and change and enrich arboricultural management practice.
