I-Tree and its benefits

Wednesday 7 November 2018, Barcham Trees

• Ian Rodger will be talking about the managing of trees in
the Royal parks
• Jan Willem de Groot . I.Tree calculates the benefits of
trees. We all know that the larger the canopy of a tree the
higher the ecosystem services are. Trees in our cities are
planted with a purpose. We want them to develop into large,
healthy and safe trees that provide us the optimum
ecosystem services. But, just planting a tree doesn’t make it
successful! If we want our new planted trees to be
successful one day, we need to give them the right tree
management. Based on his experience in The Netherlands
Jan Willem de Groot will give a presentation about young
tree management based on a plan.
