Online PR News – 27-May-2011 – – Greenleaf Urban Tree and Landscape Products have announced a series of free CPD seminars entitled ‘Designing Trees into the Urban Environment’. The seminars have been created for an audience of landscape architects, planners and related urban design professionals, and can be delivered to interested parties on their own premises.

Beginning from an understanding of the conditions that trees need in order to thrive, each seminar will explore methods by which landscape designers can help trees to integrate successfully with urban environments, overcoming the difficulties that can be encountered and reducing the high mortality rates that are typically associated with newly planted urban trees.

Topics covered will include root management, irrigation, aeration and soil structure systems, followed by a review of notable projects and a Q&A session in which attendees will have the chance to seek advice on tree planting issues related to any schemes that they are involved in.

A spokesperson for Greenleaf said:

“There is growing recognition that healthy urban trees have a vital role to play in ensuring a sustainable future for our towns and cities. Our free seminars will provide everyone involved in the tree planting process with information that will allow them to improve the success rates on their projects, and increase the number of trees that survive into maturity.

“We have trialled the content of these seminars with a number of our clients and the response has been very positive. The material has proved especially popular with those in the public sector because of its relevance across a variety of different functions. Arboricultural officers, landscape planners, highway engineers and landscape architects have all found something of value. We are very much looking forward to rolling out the material to a wider audience.”
