World-class speakers, front line science and pioneering tree care projects that put trees centre stage. Founded by TreeSister Suzi Martineau and run in conjunction with the educational outreach program of TreeSisters.org.
We hold focus on how to unite people around the needs of trees as a road map to healthy ecosystem in cities and rural areas. There will be something for everyone and the chance to explore new and really timely projects. This year TreeSisters are delighted to be supporting people to set up Tree Conferences in their own countries as something we can do to give a voice to the very specific needs in different bio-zones.
