2019: International diversity of topics with a strong practical relevance

At the beginning of November we were able to extend our contract with “Messe Augsburg” for further five years. Now we have planning reliability for the German Tree Care Conference and can expand this international symposium for arborists, experts from municipalities, tree experts, landscape architects and associations. The event will take a big step in this direction already in 2019. We were able to attract two international tree care experts as speakers: Neville Fay, a British principal arboricultural consultant and one of the world’s leading experts in sustainable care and management of veteran trees, and Margaret D. Lowman, an American biologist, educator, ecologist, writer and explorer, also known as "Canopy Meg". However, the entire program promises a diverse range of topics. In addition to the topic "Trees on dykes and dams", the focus will be on assessing the vitality of trees, the oak processionary moths and the increasing spread of mistletoe, which in some regions already presents an existential problem for trees. 

Pre-approved by ISA: from now on you can get CEUs also at this conference

The International Society of Arboriculture (ISA) in the USA has recognised the German Tree Care Conference as a professional education meeting. From 2019, the CEUs (Pre-Approved Continuing Education Units) will be available for all lectures in Augsburg. The ISA evaluated the contents of the conference and approved all contributions of the three-day event as professional training. Further information on the CEUs can be found here: https://www.isa-arbor.com/Credentials/Maintaining-Credentials/CEU-Center

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.

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.

Augsburg 2019 – the concept is finished

Dirk Dujesiefken

On the basis of the deliberations of the Advisory Board, the program of the German Tree Care Conference in Augsburg / Bavaria was conceived in the past months. I am particularly pleased that in addition to the topic of our professional partner "Trees on dykes and dams" we included as a focus topic the "vitality assessment of trees" with four lectures in our program. Again, there have been controversial discussions about this subject in the past. Furthermore, several contributions to the topic "tree management" are in preparation, such as how to deal with mistletoes and with the oak procession moth, the latter posed a major problem in 2018. The tree climbing forum will focus on new interactions and practical demonstrations. All presentations will be translated German - English and vice versus.

I am already looking forward to the interesting lectures and animated discussions on our Tree Care Conference in Augsburg.

Yours D. Dujesiefken
