Natural Tree Bracing

The turn of the year is often associated with resolutions, but I've already made promises that I'll need to keep in 2018, in relation to spreading further my research on the effects of natural bracing in trees.

The following talks on natural bracing are booked in:

  • 12th February 2018 - Denmark
  • 15-16th February 2018 - Poland
  • 29th April - 1st May 2018 - Arboriculture Australia Conference
  • June 2018 - a meeting with the European Arboricultural Council, so they are aware of the findings and the implications of this research

Nothing is yet arranged for the UK: I will be asking the Arboricultural Association if a last round of 'Fork Talks' can be completed in the UK this year. If you would like to attend a talk on natural bracing this year (and you haven't already done so), please express your interest to the AA via Emma Hall:

If you are at any of the events above, I look forward to meeting you there. If you want more details on natural bracing, my publication (at £15) is still available from the AA's Bookshop webpage - and the pound is now worth less, if you live overseas !
