The Arboricultural Association is the leading voice on all tree matters in the UK, they provide a home and membership for all professionals within the arboricultural sector – from qualified and experienced arboricultural consultants to those starting out in the industry – they champion the sustainable management of trees in places where people live work and play – for the benefit of Society.
All the tree surveyors and arboriculturists at AWA Tree Consultants are members of the Arboricultural Association, either as technician members ‘TechArborA’, or as full professional members ‘MArborA’, which provides our tree survey clients recognition of our expertise, experience and knowledge of arboricultural matters at all levels.
The Arboricultural Association operates a Branch network across the whole of the UK and Ireland. Run by volunteer members, the various Branches organise local training events, lectures, seminars and field trips. The Midlands Branch of the Arboricultural Association recently held the ‘Thinking Arbs Day’ at Sherwood Forest Country Park, Nottinghamshire, in conjunction with Nottinghamshire County Council and the Ancient Tree Forum. Overall the event was an enjoyable day spent looking at some remarkable ancient trees, and it was nice to catch up with 60+ fellow tree professionals.
Below are some photos of the remarkable trees we looked at through the day. We provided a detailed write up of the day, and the topics that were discussed by the expert speakers. Please look at the full report by following this link to the Arboricultural Association website.
