The UK Treescapes fellows look to answer some key questions surrounding Treescape Expansion in the UK. They will bring these fundamental questions about the Future of UK Treescapes to a wider audience through collaborations with stakeholders, the development of new tools, policy recommendations and public engagement activities.
This Fellowship will facilitate knowledge exchange with a major interdisciplinary Austrian project focused on securing seed supply for forest expansion that will help the UK overcome this barrier to treescape expansion.
This project seeks to understand how the expansion of floodplain treescapes can reduce the impact of river flooding using a typical catchment in the south of the UK.
This Fellowship will tap into in-depth Norwegian knowledge on mountain woodland restoration and explore new understandings and conceptual frameworks
This fellowship will promote the expansion of silvoarable agroforestry in the UK by identifying and providing solutions to barriers to uptake, increasing the evidence-base for farming practices, and co-developing recommendations for policy, research, and educational outputs.
This project will evaluate the impact of urban heat and pollution islands in Leeds using in-situ measured data from the urban canopy layer
This project will draw on European practitioners’ deep knowledge and experience in wood pasture ecosystems to increase the national capacity to engage with wood pasture as a sustainable upland management opportunity.
This work aims to identify surviving elms and infected elms that are still sprouting in three case study areas of Scotland (The Borders, Highlands and Islands).
To demonstrate the potential of a data-driven approach to the planning of tree planting for quantifiable ecosystem services, and explore how this approach can best be integrated with a community-centred one.
