There will be keynote presentations through the conference and sessions on each of the days that explore specific themes:
- Day 1. ‘A prickly issue?: the Holly and the Thorn – history, ecology, folklore and ethnology’,
- Day 2. ‘Tree Archaeology: history, heritage, technology, management and conservation’, and
- Day 3. ‘An Enigma?: ageing multi-stemmed trees – archaeology, history and scientific analysis’
We will include panel discussions focused on each of the themes, poster presentations and displays.
The conference will be a cross-disciplinary event with contributions from woodland managers and practitioners, veteran tree specialists, dendrochronologists, archaeologists, vernacular building architects and technologists, ecologists and woodland historians. We are keen to attract a broad range of people to contribute to the ongoing debate around these topics. Speakers confirmed include Della Hooke, Rob Jarman, Andrew Hoaen and Gavin Simpson. Poster presentations are welcome.
