ICF National Conference 2017: Trees, People and the Built Environment 3

5-6 April, Birmingham

The triennial urban trees research conference, Trees People and the Built Environment 3 (TPBE 3) will take place next spring, following on from acclaimed events in 2011 and 2014. This year the conference will focus on two significant areas of research;

  • Day 1:Roads to Place - Why trees are an integral part of highway transport design
  • Day 2:The Health Crisis - the role of trees in improving human health (Mental, physical, social and cultural)

The event will provide a platform for UK and international researchers and practitioners to showcase their vital work in these areas, and help both built and natural environment professionals turn this research into action.

TPBE3 is hosted and organised by the Institute of Chartered Foresters (ICF) on behalf of a group of partner organisations, including: Ancient Tree Forum, Arboricultural Association, Birmingham Institute of Forest Research, Chartered Institute of Housing, Forestry Commission England, Forest Research, Fund4Trees, Green Infrastructure Partnership (TCPA), Institution of Civil Engineers, London Tree Officers Association, Municipal Tree Officers Association, National Association of Tree Officers, National Joint Utilities Group, Place Alliance, Society for the Environment, Trees and Design Action Group, Urban Design Group, Utility Arboriculture Group and Woodland Trust.
