Your Ancient Tree Forum Needs You!
Ancient Tree Forum Wales
Thursday 23rd April 2015
Dinefwr Park, Llandeilo
Natur Cymru had many articles and mentions of the Ancient Tree Forum in its pages. If trees are your thing, now there's a chance to get more involved.
Tracey Lovering is starting up a Welsh branch of the UK Ancient Tree Forum and is inviting all interested people along to the first meeting on 23rd April. If you are unable to make this date there will be other opportunities to meet this summer and autumn across Wales.To book a place, register an interest, or for further information, please email Tracey at firstname.lastname@example.org
The National Trust are generously hosting the first meeting at Dinefwr Park, Llandeilo, Carmarthenshire. Brian Muelaner, UK Chair of Ancient Tree Forum Wales, will be there to introduce everyone to the Ancient Tree Forum, and set the context for the day. Brian has visited Dinefwr Park previously, and suggested the site as ideal for the first meeting as it has a range of notable trees.
If you are a National Trust member please ensure you bring your card on the day, as all scanned memberships will help towards the cost of the room (which NT will meet).

Here's hoping it's a good day and the weather is kind!
