COST Action CA20132 “UrbanTreeGuard” Training school

Ljubljana, Slovenia, August 26-30, 2024

Urban trees provide essential ecosystem services, including temperature regulation, cultural and aesthetic values, and support for biodiversity. However, due to global trade and climate change, there is an increasing pressure by native and nonnative tree insect pests on urban trees and forests.

The CA20132 Training School aims to provide the participants with an updated scientific background regarding biology, diagnosis, and management of insect tree pests.

Target groups: PhD students and young researchers and innovators with relevant interests; professionals working with management and care of urban trees, urban planning, or other related tasks.
