Another great success for Chris Neilan and CAVAT!  The first event of the year, held at FirstSite in Colchester, was sold out within a few weeks of going on sale and the 20 delegates, from the private and public sector, enjoyed good weather for another day of essential training with in-depth analysis of CAVAT, and practical field work in the magnificent surroundings of Castle Park. Sharon Hosegood and Luke Faye discussed their forthcoming Canopy and CAVAT valuations of development sites over years, projecting forward existing and new planting. A document on this will be circulated soon.

For those who missed this course, more are planned but take note, the next date, on the20th June, is booked already, so if you'd like to be placed on a cancellation list, let Noel at SHA know as soon as possible.

Portrait of the Tree Exhibition

Sharon is delighted to have been asked, by Yvonne Alexander, founder of Jet TV, to join a small group of people and discuss their favourite tree. ‘A Portrait of the Tree’, a collection of works by renowned photographer Adrian Houston. The list of tree lovers includes Sir Richard Branson Goldie Hawn and Nick Mason (Official) who have imparted fascinating stories about their favourites, and Sharon chose the Major Oak, subject of the Tree Radar survey by this company which recently appeared as a feature on BBC Springwatch. The exhibition of stunning photography, including the Major Oak, will appear at Unit London’s new Hanover Square site, from the 17th to 28th September, so make sure to get along to the exhibition.  See the ICF promo of it here
