The Country Land and Business Association’s forestry and woodlands adviser Mike Seville will be at Myerscough College on March 25, to update farmers, landowners and foresters on the latest developments in tree diseases.
He will also give advice on how to reduce the risk of injury and subsequent litigation related to trees in public places. The seminar will look at the current situation and future implications of the two diseases threatening British forests and woodlands – Chalara fraxinea (ash dieback) and Phytophthora ramorum in larch.
The seminar will finish with a discussion on the Government Forestry and Woodlands Policy Statement and its implications of this statement for landowners and foresters.
The event costs £15 for CLA members and £20 for non-members and will start at 1pm.
