Woodlands at War: The Impact and Legacy of WWI and WWII on Britain’s Woodlands

CPD hours or CEU points available

With Clive Mayhew

Clive Mayhew

Clive has worked in arboriculture since the early 1990’s, as a practitioner, a local government officer and an independent consultant.

A long-standing advocate of custodial arboriculture, he sees tree professionals as fleeting caretakers of the trees and landscapes in their care.

This has led to a desire to learn more about the trees we inherit, using archaeology, geology, art, photography and written records to reach a more holistic understanding of the factors which shaped those individual trees, the landscapes they inhabit, and the people who worked them.

It's a millennium-spanning, global story which is strikingly familiar and relevant, from ancient Mesopotamia to the Americas, from the Amazon to the Sussex Weald, via a myriad of places in between.

This webinar looks at one chapter of this global story, focusing on the largely overlooked contribution made by British woodlands over two world wars. It considers those pre-war woodlands, describes the nature and extent of their contribution during the conflicts, and assesses its post war legacy. It also considers what the removal of nearly half of the of the country’s woodlands – twice over in just thirty years - looks like, both then and now.

Street Tree Survival in Philadelphia and Canopy Soils

With Levon Bigelow and Korena Mafune

Street trees are important, highly visible components of the urban forest, providing ecosystem services (e.g., shade) directly to communities. Street tree mortality can result in a loss of ecosystem services for which the trees are planted, particularly premature mortality accelerated by local biophysical and human factors. My study involved a systematic, repeated inventory and mortality analysis of street tree populations in Philadelphia, PA.

Why do we lose so many trees?

With Russell Miller and James Chambers

Why do so many urban trees get felled unnecessarily? This webinar will look at how bad law, poor risk management and weak arboriculture cause premature tree loss; identifying where the law and arboriculture must improve if they are to maintain public confidence through the biodiversity and climate crisis.
