On Friday 13th November, Barcham Trees will hold a joint meeting held in conjunction with EATaLOG the East Anglian Tree and Landscape Officers Group. The focus will be on establishing and retaining quality trees in our towns and cities, chaired by Russell Horsley (ICF Director).

The morning session will centre around the planting and maintenance of street trees to nurture trees that will flourish and maximise the ecosystem they provide. Speakers on the day will include Kieth Sacre (sales director at Barcham Trees) and Deane Bowie (Deep Blue planting systems).

The afternoon seminar will provide a review of BS5837:2012 ‘Trees in relation to demolition, design and construction – recommendations’, while concentrating on protecting trees at development sites and how the process might be improved. Sharon Hosegood (Sharon Hosegood Associates) will present a consultants’ opinion, meanwhile Simon Case (North Norfolk District Council) will offer observations on the process from a local authority perspective. These two speakers will set the scene for what is hoped to be a lively debate on the subject.
