Visit to Brighton Elms followed by the Stanmer Park Restoration Project. 

Brighton is home to the National Elm Collection with over 17,000 elm trees in the city.  We will be looking at some of the most significant trees in the collection and learning about the work carried out by Brighton & Hove City Council to safeguard these rare species.

As an educational charity, the RFS must lead by example on the biosecurity measures recommended by the Forestry Commission (FC) and Defra to minimise the risk of spreading soil-borne tree infections. You can make a difference to stopping the spread of tree diseases. Clean boots are a first step!  For further information, please click here


Most all-day meetings start at around 10:00 and end at around 16:00, but please check precise details with the Local Honorary Secretary.
