Trees, People and the Built Environment: call for papers


31 JULY 2013

Following a successful international conference in April 2011, the Call for Papers is now open for 2014’s Trees, People and the Built Environment II – the significant platform to showcase the latest vital research on urban trees and urban forests.

The main aims of this important research event are to identify:

  • Completed research that remains relevant,
  • Research being undertaken currently, and
  • Gaps in research where future efforts need to be focused.

The conference recognises the wide range of organisations and disciplines whose work relates to urban trees and the event is an opportunity to take a valuable step forward in working together. While the conference will be hosted by the Institute of Chartered Foresters as its 2014 National Conference, the event is a partnership initiative including ICE.

Papers are welcomed that address any topic involving trees and the built environment, in both the social and natural sciences. These will be either:

  • Original research papers presenting new work in a specific subject area.
  • Review papers covering existing and ongoing research in a broad subject area (such as tree pathology, urban forest governance, tree establishment, community involvement, trees and urban design, urban forest mapping, biodiversity, etc). This type of paper is also expected to indicate where future research in that field might be focused.
