Focus for 2023: Sponge City, Tree Management and Rope Climbing Techniques

The effects of climate change, extreme weather events, are increasing and presenting cities and planners with major challenges. A forward-looking solution is the Sponge City, a model which focuses on both the importance of trees and the necessity of keeping them healthy. At the conference the results of the latest research will be presented and possible solutions will be discussed. The focus, as always, is on the practical implementation of the latest knowledge and the international exchange of experience.

As in previous years, all lectures at the German Tree Care Days will be translated simultaneously, namely German/English and English/German. The headphones are available to conference participants free of charge at the conference counter.

In 2023, we are expecting around 150 exhibitors from Germany and abroad to form Europe's largest tree care trade fair. We have once again enlarged the exhibition area to give all exhibitors the optimal chance to present and display their products.

Informations for exhibitors

The conference with its lectures and discussions establishes an interactive tie between theoretical and practical tree care. During the three-day conference experts of different disciplines of arboriculture come together for an exchange of information.

Tree Climbing Forum
Arborists and tree climbers from all over Europe and overseas will find a program especially designed for their professional belongings. International speakers combine practical-orientated lectures with practical presentations on the climbing tower.

Trade Show
The German Tree Care Conference is accompanied by a trade show on which 140 well-known exhibitors will present their innovations, products and services for every-day work in arboriculture. Furthermore, there will be various activities and presentations in the hall and outside area.

German Tree Care Conference now also with digital offers!

Individual videos of lectures from the program in the Climbing Forum can now also be purchased. The videos can be streamed for an unlimited time, similar to Netflix and Amazon. Since all lectures were bilingual on site, there is also a German and English version for all videos.
The videos were produced by Berlin-based film producer Katja Kirseck Mischke.
The videos are an additional offer to the conference in Augsburg.

30 years of German Tree Care Conference in Augsburg

Dirk Dujesiefken and Thomas Amtage

The inaugural Tree Care Conference took place in Augsburg in 1993 and was organised by Dr Steffen Wiebe as a two-day event. In the years that followed, the conference grew larger and more diverse to include specialist lectures, a climbing forum and a trade fair. Our conference is now Europe's largest tree care event.

Specialist partner in 2023 is the University of Applied Science and Art (HAWK) of Göttingen. And we are delighted about the strong participation of the university in our conference. In this, our anniversary year, we are again expecting a broad range of participants and exhibitors from Germany and abroad.

The chance to see a live presentation and the opportunity to meet peers, colleagues and contacts, new and old, face to face, is difficult via video conference. This year we're allocating an area in the hall to allow for more opportunities to meet.

We look forward to interesting talks and discussions in Augsburg!
