OUR NEXT ARBOR DAY – 4th February 2021

Our next Arbor Day event will be a digital event, due to the issues around the current COVID outbreak and associated lockdown.

During the event, on Thursday the 4th of February 2021, we will be announcing our tree planting achievements and there will be a set of brilliant guest speakers talking about the value of trees – and about careers in arboriculture.

If you are interesting in attending this digital event, please contact Dr. Duncan Slater via email: dslater@myerscough.ac.uk


Personalised message for our Arbor Day from Dan Lambe of the Arbor Day Foundation. We are very pleased to have their support in our efforts to plant trees.
