Main topic 2019: Trees on dykes and dams

Now it is clear: professional partner of the German Tree Care Conference 2019 is the BWK, the Association of Engineers for Water Management, Waste Management and Cultural Construction, which also deals with soil protection and environmental technology. The choice of this partner shows once again that we are thinking outside the box and in addition to the classic tree topics, we also take up questions from neighboring disciplines. In the BWK, engineers, scientists and environmentalists pursue the goal of reconciling the demands of mankind and the possibilities and limits of technology in a sustainable manner. In Augsburg, the focus of the professional partner will be on "trees on dikes and dams". We would like to discuss how the water protection devices can be safely constructed and, at the same time, integrated into the landscape, for example by planting or protecting existing trees. In addition, several lectures will be devoted to tree protection on construction sites in the coming year. The complete program will be published later this year in December.

The conference with its lectures and discussions establishes an interactive tie between theoretical and practical tree care. During the three-day conference experts of different disciplines of arboriculture come together for an exchange of information.

Tree Climbing Forum
Arborists and tree climbers from all over Europe and overseas will find a program especially designed for their professional belongings. International speakers combine practical-orientated lectures with practical presentations on the climbing tower in the outdoor area.

Trade Show
The German Tree Care Conference is accompanied by a trade show on which 140 well-known exhibitors will present their innovations, products and services for every-day work in arboriculture. Furthermore, there will be various activities and presentations in the hall and outside area.

Augsburg 2019 – the concept is finished

Dirk Dujesiefken

On the basis of the deliberations of the Advisory Board, the program of the German Tree Care Conference in Augsburg / Bavaria was conceived in the past months. I am particularly pleased that in addition to the topic of our professional partner "Trees on dykes and dams" we included as a focus topic the "vitality assessment of trees" with four lectures in our program. Again, there have been controversial discussions about this subject in the past. Furthermore, several contributions to the topic "tree management" are in preparation, such as how to deal with mistletoes and with the oak procession moth, the latter posed a major problem in 2018. The tree climbing forum will focus on new interactions and practical demonstrations. All presentations will be translated German - English and vice versus.

In the coming month, preparations will continue with discussions at Messe Augsburg and at Haymarket Media in Braunschweig. Afterwards, the submitted poster contributions will be discussed in order to complete the program.

I am already looking forward to the interesting lectures and animated discussions on our Tree Care Conference in Augsburg.

Yours D. Dujesiefken
