Lectures

Current tree diseases, drought stress and possible solutions

On all three days the lectures will focus on trees in climate change, consequences of drought, and tree diseases. The main focus will be on possible solutions in dealing with climate-related problems. This thematic focus will be supplemented by practical demonstrations indoors and outdoors and by the scientific poster session.

The three-day symposium brings together experts and practitioners from different fields. The aim is to exchange and discuss the latest research. The centre of the numerous lectures and presentations on sustainable and healthy tree care is the Large Hall at the Augsburg Exhibition Centre.
