Seminars introduce new guidance on tree selection for green infrastructure projects

A sample of the new digital document 'Species Selection for Green Infrastructure: A Guide for Specifiers'.

Two seminars, due to take place in London and Birmingham next month, will introduce new guidance on tree selection for those engaged with green infrastructure projects.

In the face of multiple urban challenges, including the anticipated impacts of a changing climate, trees are widely recognised as making a significant contribution towards ameliorating some of these issues — however, they can only deliver their many benefits over the long term if appropriate species are selected for a given location.

‘A Guide to Tree Species Selection for Green Infrastructure – Helping to Grow a Resilient Urban Forest’ will reveal the latest findings from Myerscough College and the University of Lancaster, and will also see the launch of an exciting new digital document ‘Species Selection for Green Infrastructure: A Guide for Specifiers’. Developed in collaboration with the Trees and Design Action Group, the digital guide will help to provide a diverse and resilient palette of trees for towns and cities, that are capable of thriving in challenging urban environments.

The seminars are aimed at all those engaged in the built environment, including design professionals, developers, planners, natural environment specialists and health professionals who recognise the value of a healthy and resilient urban forest.

Seminars will take place on:

  • 13 March 2018, 10.00-16.00, at the Building Centre, Store Street, London, WC1E 4BT
  • 15 March 2018, 10.00-16.00, in the Michael Tippett Room at the University of Birmingham
