The trustees are pleased to announce the publication of our first comprehensive research strategy. The strategy arose from a participatory ‘café-style’ workshop held at the Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew in July 2018. The meeting was attended by trustees and members of the Research Advisory Committee, to review progress and future opportunities for Fund4Trees’ research activities promoting sustainable treescapes.

Purpose of the research strategy
The Fund4Trees Research Strategy provides a focus for our research supporting sustainable treescapes. It covers a five-year period from 2019-2024. It guides how we commission research, provides a focus for the awarding of grants and bursaries, and informs our communications.
Fund4Trees Research Strategy 2019-24
Our research focus is on three interlinked themes: planning for trees in green infrastructure, ensuring successful tree establishment, leading to the delivery of multiple benefits to society and the environment.
