National Tree Week

16 November 2022

It’s The Tree Council’s National Tree Week (NTW) from November 26 to December 4, and this year we're focusing on all the #Hiddenconnections so vital to the life of our trees - from the roots, to the soil that surrounds them, and even the fantastic fungi delivering important nutrients out of human sight.

There's a whole world of complex activity beneath the ground on which we walk. We hope National Tree Week 2022 will intrigue you as much with the life beneath the earth, as with the seeds, leaves, flowers and boughs above it.

To fire your imagination, we have two fascinating free, online Tree Talks in NTW.

On Monday November 28 at 7pm, The Tree Council’s own Director of Trees, Science & Research, Jon Stokes will be joined by Chartered Arboriculturist and President of the Institute of Chartered Foresters, Sharon Durdant-Hollamby to Demystify the Tangled World of Tree Roots.

This is followed on Thursday December 1 at 7pm, when celebrated academic, Professor Martin Bidartondo will join Tree Council CEO, Sara Lom for a discussion: Trees and Fungi Working Together – A Remarkable Relationship.
