For the final run, former Trees and Landscapes Officer and now Senior Lecturer in Arboriculture at Myerscough College, Dr Duncan Slater will reveal ground-breaking new findings which may change the way we assess junctions in trees and disprove the idea that tree forks are inherently weak and should be pruned out of trees.

As well as his own conclusions and discoveries, Dr Slater will present the analysis of the answers from 346 arborists and arboriculturists who responded to a questionnaire about how they manage bark-included junctions (representing over 6,500 years of arboricultural experience).

Delegates attending the Branch event will receive comprehensive instruction in everything from previous research, the anatomy of branch attachment, factors affecting junction to risk assessments of junctions. Along with this they will receive the Forks Course Notes publication and an entertaining day’s CPD.
