ICF and TBE4
We have just completed our promo video for the following event to be hosted by the Institute of Chartered Foresters.
Please see below the ICF text regarding the event.
'Every three years the Institute of Chartered Foresters proudly partners with academic institutions and built and natural environment professionals to host an international cross-discipline conference on urban greenspace. Trees, People and the Built Environment provides a platform for greater understanding and exploration as researchers and practitioners from across the globe showcase their work in urban greenspace.
As you’ll be aware, the situation with Covid-19 meant we had to postpone this year’s conference. We apologise again for any inconvenience caused but we’re sure you understand that the well-being of our members, delegates and speakers needed to take priority.
The great news, however, is that we have confirmed dates for a rescheduled conference which, excitingly, will take place entirely online on the 3rd and 4th of February 2021.'
Sunday Times request help from Sharon regarding fallen acorns
The Sunday Times reached out again last week to Sharon and SHA to reveal who is responsible for the clear-up of tree items (acorns, in this case) which descend at this time of year (or any time of year tbh).
As always happy to help, read the item here as it appeared on Sunday October 11th
