Trees Workshop


  Bialowieza Forest, the last primary forest in Europe, is an excellent place to learn about biodiversity. Our workshops were focused on trees, which here reach astounding, even record sizes! Several excursions with lectures of the best specialists in various fields certainly inspired our participants to introduce greenery, afforestation and shrubs to the urban landscape.

Biodiversity, dendrology and urban greenery workshop

had place in Wejmutka, 03.10.2014 – 7.10.2014

We had an amazing time during our last workshop hosted in cooperation with Soontiëns Ecology from Netherlands (3.10.-7.10.2014)! The main topic were trees, natural forest ecosystems and biodiversity on the fantastic example of Białowieża Fo...rest, which was truly outstanding in its autumn, colourful apparel. WEJMUTKA Białowieża Biodiversity Academy hosted 11 professional arborists, landscape designers, tree workers and eco gardeners. This very intensive workshop included many lectures, intense excursions and long talks about the forest. We hope that besides learning our participants also bonded, so that additionally these few days will result with new and true friendships. We also hope that we see them again next year during the next edition of Trees, Natural Forest Ecosystems and Biodiversity Workshop!
