National Tree Week
The Arboricultural Association is proud to support National Tree Week again in 2020!
Make your voice heard on National Tree Week
28th November – 6th December 2020
To celebrate National Tree Week, we’re highlighting the value of the Arboriculture industry to the UK over the next month. Trees are so important and so often undervalued, tree care professionals get even less recognition; we want to change this.
So, with #ArbMatters, we’re encouraging everyone to share their personal thoughts on why our industry is so important and why it needs greater recognition, using the hashtag #ArbMatters
Help us showcase this sector full of experts and amazing inspirational stories of people working with trees, pushing the boundaries of knowledge and learning.
