Working with Europe

Pound FarmAn important element of Observatree is to work with European organisations to share our project experiences as well as learn from similar projects being carried out.

Key Observatree activities include:

Surveying European tree health citizen science projects (January 2015)

Download Survey results

Delivering a ‘Tree and Plant Health Early Warning Systems in Europe’ conference

This was delivered jointly with IPSN (International Plant Sentinel Network), supported by EPPO (European and Mediterranean Plant Protection Organisation). The conference was held on 23-24 February 2016 at the Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew, UK. Find out more.

Establishing a European tree health citizen science knowledge network

If this is something you are interested in getting involved in please contact us.

Study tours/advisory visits

If your organisation is thinking of setting up a tree health citizen science project outside of the UK and you think you might benefit from a visit or study tour then please get in touch as soon as possible. Attend some of our volunteer training events and learn directly from key project staff in various locations. We can only offer a very limited number of these tours and visits so places will be offered to those organisations that we feel will benefit most.

Sharing best practice and lessons learnt

Below are links to downloadable documents we have created that illustrate our experiences and learnings from the project so far:
