ICF North England: Conifer Production and Amenity Tree ManagementBook now
Managing for High-Yielding Conifer Production and High-Value Amenity Tree Management
The morning session of this event will consist of a guided walk through Hovingham Estate’s High Wood, which is being managed to maximise coniferous species production using mainly Douglas Fir and Sitka Spruce, and will cover topics including ground preparation; planting (species & planting stock); establishment; and deer control.
After lunch, you will head to Hovingham Village Green, where you will cover the topic of high amenity tree management.
Within the green setting, there are multiple veteran Lime Trees which are in decline and suffering from bacterium and fungal issues including Bleeding Canker (Phytopthora cactorum) and Oyster mushroom (Pleuotus ostreatus). There will be a discussion around the planning implications and future management of these trees.
