Our Professional Development Partner TDAG would like to invite you to this online seminar on Wednesday 19th July.

Of course, trees need to be considered in four dimensions – what their roots are doing underground, what their trunks are doing at ground level, what their canopies are doing above ground and how all these change and increase over the fourth dimension of time. At TDAG we do not talk about ‘tree planting’ we talk about ‘tree establishment’ and the key to successful establishment, apart from the health and quality of the tree stock, is ‘where’ and ‘how’ the trees in planted in the first place. This seminar will take a balanced look at different planting methods and which method is most appropriate for which location with a particular focus on street trees and podium planting.
