The World Health Organisation (WHO) estimates that 60% of the world’s population will live in urban areas by 2030, placing increased spatial and environmental constraints on the urban forest. The area surrounding an urban tree is likely to change two or three times during its lifetime and modern trees must be able to be managed to fit the changing nature of their location.
In this presentation, arborist Mark Roberts will look at the reality of pruning practices, urban ecology and tree risk. Roberts is an ISA certified arborist with over 25 years of experience, and holds life membership of the New Zealand Arboricultural Association and the International Society of Arboriculture.
