Trees in climate change: The Julius Kühn-Institute is expert partner 2020

The Julius Kühn-Institute (JKI) investigates the effects of climate change, globalisation, trade in goods and urbanisation on our livelihoods. From 21 to 23 April 2020, the JKI, which is an independent higher federal authority affiliated to the Federal Ministry of Food and Agriculture (BMEL), will be a specialist partner of the German Tree Care Days in Augsburg. In various lectures and exhibitions, everything focuses on the tree in climate change, the consequences of drought, tree diseases and tree pests. The main focus is on the presentation of possible solutions in dealing with climate-related challenges. The detailed programme of the conference will be published here on the homepage in December.

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 in the outdoor area.

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.

Trees - more important than ever

Dirk Dujesiefken

The more climate change progresses, the more important trees become. But our native trees are increasingly stressed by heat and drought, becoming easy targets for pests and diseases. According to the organisation “Bund Deutscher Forstleute”, more than 100 million old trees have already died in Germany's forests as a result of climate change. In the Harz Mountains, for example, the bark beetle has caused drastic damage to the weakened trees. But it is not only the well-known pests that cause us concern. As it gets warmer, more harmful organisms from more southern regions migrate to us and bring new pests and tree diseases.

Together with the Julius Kühn-Institute (JKI) we will take up this problem and present possible solutions for the practice. The preliminary discussions have already resulted in many suggestions for the coming tree care conference in Augsburg. I'm already looking forward to the next event from 21 to 23 April 2020.

Best regards

Yours D. Dujesiefken
