South Yorkshire Biodiversity Research Group (SYBRG) (Econet) & partners are organising two conferences on the theme of ‘Tree Archaeology’ looking at archaeology and heritage at the core of understanding treescapes. These multi-disciplinary events will link the managed woodland or individual tree to their processing and utilisation in historic buildings other structures and processes. They will bring together veteran tree specialists, dendrochronologists, archaeologists, vernacular building architects and technologists, ecologists and woodland historians to discuss the history and technology of woodland management, processes and products. The events will look at the various aspects of tree and woodland archaeology which extends from the hedgerow/ wood-pasture/ wood [process] to final destination [product].
