Fund 4 Trees Belfast Abseil Event

Arbortec is to sponsor a first-of-its-kind event: a sponsored abseil off a prime Belfast building, the Europa Hotel, taking place on 14th June 2015. The event is being organised by Fund 4 Trees, a charity promoting sustainable treescapes (trees in our landscapes) by:

  • promoting for the benefit of the public the conservation, protection and improvement of the physical and natural environment by promoting sustainable treescapes.
  • further educating the public in the conservation, protection and improvement of trees in the physical and natural environment.
  • advancing research for the public benefit in all aspects of trees and to publish useful findings.

Details of the Fund 4 Trees Abseil are still being finalised and will be published here as soon as they are but the idea is that the abseil will be completed by professionals working in forestry and arboriculture who are sponsored by friends, businesses and members of the public. Local schools and communities will be involved. All proceeds go to scientists working to secure a sustainable future  for our treescapes.

The Fund 4 Trees Abseil event is affiliated with a number of core supporters including the UK & Ireland chapter of the International Society of Arboriculture, the Arboricultural Association and the Institute of Chartered Foresters

Irish Forestry Show 2015

The Irish Forestry, Woodland and Bio-Energy Show (to give it its full and splendid title) is one for the diary; to be held on Saturday 9th and Sunday 10th May 2015 at the beautiful Stradbally Hall Estate in Co. Laois. This is great show to visit, camp in the grounds with fellow arborists – beers around the camp fire – and check out machinery and timber-related goods but more importantly the opportunity to enter the Irish National Tree Climbing Championships sponsored by Husqvarna.
