Carbon Gold brings the benefits of biochar to Arboricultural Association Amenity Conference 2014
Carbon Gold will be exhibiting at the Arboricultural Association’s Amenity Conference at Royal Holloway (September 14-17) celebrating 50 years of the Association. The conference, themed ‘healthy trees, healthy people’, aims to break new ground under the straightforward declaration – ‘trees make places better for people’. Sessions will focus on previously unaddressed issues, in turn reaching out to a wider audience of landscape architects, urban planners, health professionals, policy makers and local authorities; with talks on climate change, tree health and human wellbeing topping the bill.
Over the past two years, world leading biochar company Carbon Gold has worked in collaboration with Bartlett Tree Research Laboratories to develop a range of biochar based tree treatments, in an effort to combat some of the most common threats to young and established trees. International research has shown that biochar, when added as a soil amendment, induces systemic resistance to widespread diseases such as Phytophthora, honey fungus and powdery mildew, and significantly reduce the severity of damage caused by pests such as the horse chestnut leaf miner.
Biochar is known to encourage stronger root extension and stabilise soil humidity. Significantly, it has been proven to reduce transplant mortality by an impressive 60%. Large scale UK ash dieback field trials are also showing positive results after two years.
Carbon Gold is committed to helping arborists, landscapers, nurseries and growers improve tree health and reduce losses – ensuring more trees survive when every carbon capturing leaf counts toward the health and wellbeing of both the planet and the people.
