Tree Planting, Carbon and Climate – Free Online Talk hosted by ANT and Friends of the Marden Valley

Tommaso Jucker of Bristol University and Nikki Jones of ANT discuss tree planting in the context of carbon capture, biodiversity and climate.

Have you heard about the benefits of tree planting for biodiversity and climate, but want to understand more? Would you like to hear about the issues from people working on practical solutions? Please join us to learn more about the fascinating interactions between trees and the soil, wildlife and atmosphere around them.

Tommaso Jucker is the NERC Research Fellow and Lecturer in the School of Biological Sciences at the University of Bristol, leading a research group working on the ecology and conservation of the world’s forests. He has brought his research on carbon capture to ANT’s Hazeland project in Wiltshire and will be talking about “Getting the most out of tree planting for biodiversity and climate”.

Nikki Jones is Chair of Avon Needs Trees, working to create new permanent woodland across the Bristol-Avon Catchment area. She will be talking about developments with the tree planting, tree management and biodiversity goals at Hazeland, as well as giving an update on where next for Avon Needs Trees.

The talks will be hosted by Friends of the Marden Valley with chair Ian Thorn. There will be an opportunity for a Q&A session with the speakers.

This is a free, online event organised by Friends of the Marden Valley and Avon Needs Trees. Tickets are available through Eventbrite and absolutely all are welcome.
