Martin Gammie, managing director, Consulting with Trees Limited

Dr Louisa Robinson-Boyer, head of research and development, PlantWorks Ltd

Subjects will include:

  • The beneficial use of new generation soil conditioning technology to improve soil performance
  • Thinking outside the tree pit – what sustainable urban tree planting really looks like
  • The role of mycorrhizal fungi in facilitating water and nutrient uptake

A feature of this year’s conference will be a Soil Surgery, held during the day’s networking periods. Members of the Tim O’Hare Associates team will be on hand to help delegates with their specific soil issues.
