My Life in Three Trees

With a theme of ‘My Life In Three Trees’, Sharon Durdant-Hollamby FICFor interviews Tony Kirkham MBE, then Head of Arboretum, Gardens and Horticultural Services at the Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew.

Tony and his team at Kew managed over 14,000 trees, amongst many other responsibilities. In recognition of his invaluable contribution to horticulture in a career spanning over 40 years, Tony was awarded an MBE in the Queen’s New Year’s Honours List 2020.

This #MembersHour took place on 30 April 2020.

Carbon Mitigation Outcomes of Different Afforestation Strategies

Net zero targets and the climate change crisis have stimulated tree planting targets, but which trees should be planted to maximise climate change mitigation, how should we manage them and what should we do with the harvested wood? Join Eilidh Forster to discover how she found that new commercial forest can be more effective for climate change mitigation than new forest managed for conservation.
