The Tree Register Alan Mitchell Lecture 2016
Thursday 9th June at The Royal Botanic Garden, Edinburgh
Every other year The Tree Register organise a meeting and lecture to honour the memory of their Founder, Alan Mitchell. The Alan Mitchell Lecture is the centre-piece of the day, given by a distinguished speaker on a subject of likely appeal to members and of particular interest to Alan.
This year the lecture ‘New Trees’ will be held at the Royal Botanic Garden, Edinburgh (RBGE) and the speaker will be Dr. John Grimshaw, Director of the Yorkshire Arboretum at Castle Howard, North Yorkshire. John is a trained botanist and passionate gardener with wide interests in plants and horticulture in general. He sits on several RHS committees and has written books (including New Trees) and numerous magazine articles.
In addition the National Tree Collections of Scotland (NTCS) are organising a coach trip from Edinburgh to Dawyck Botanic Garden, Peebles on Friday 10th June, available to all Lecture Ticket Holders at an additional charge. Details will be supplied with Lecture tickets.
