The Programme Advisory Board (PAB) are a group of our stakeholders who advise our Programme Ambassadors on the industry, policy and wider society applications and impact of the Treescapes research programme in order to help the Programme achieve its objectives.

The Board offer advice to the Ambassadors and project leaders on stakeholder and public engagement aspects of the research, including key issues for policy and practice, and identifying future research priorities.
