ABOUT

The Trees, People and the Built Environment conference is a unique gathering of built and natural environment professionals, working towards the shared goal of enhancing green infrastructure. It provides an important platform for collaboration between professions and offers new research on the environmental, social and economic benefits of urban trees.

Day 1 | Roads to Place

  • Why trees are an integral part of highway transport design

Day 2 | The Health Crisis

  • The role of trees in improving human health (mental, physical, social and cultural)

Prof Alan Simson, TPBE3 Conference Chair, explains on the significance of these subjects:

“The conference will be a significant event in promoting the benefits that trees can bring to urban futures in the 21st century – Delegates will gain an understanding of how important it is for sectors to integrate trees into their planning processes to improve quality of life in our towns and cities.

This International Urban Trees Research Conference provides a platform for UK and international researchers and practitioners to showcase their vital work in these areas, and help both built and natural environment professionals turn this research into action.

Shireen Chambers FICFor, ICF Executive Director, welcomed the opportunity for collaboration with such a wide range of natural and built environment organisations;

“The Institute of Chartered Foresters is proud to host and organise the Trees, People and the Built Environment conference series on behalf of the conference partners. The event is a unique opportunity for professionals from across the natural and built environment sectors to meet and collaborate on the important issue of urban greening. Urban trees are an essential part of our green infrastructure and it is imperative that we provide such opportunities for joined-up thinking across the professions.”

Matilda van den Bosch

“My view is that the concept of ecosystem services and the monetising of nature have facilitated the communication between scientists and policy makers on these topics.  I believe that we need to recognise that we sometimes speak different languages between disciplines and sectors.  From this perspective, I think that numbers and pound signs can contribute to translating  science into policy and practice”

– Matilda van den Bosch

Maarten Buijs

“People can get very emotional about trees, especially in situations where tree plantings are relatively sparse, such as in urban areas […] I don’t think urbanisation has affected this human instinct/relationship with trees much.  There is, however, a decrease of understanding  and decline of knowledge about trees.  It requires education to temper the emotional responses from urban dwellers”

– Maarten Buijs
