Augsburg 2019: More practice on a larger area

The German Tree Care Conference 2019 presented itself more comprehensively than ever: With a total of 7,000 m², the exhibition area of the trade show was 700 m² larger than in previous years. The extended area offered even more space for practical demonstrations in addition to the professional lectures. In 2019, the ten-metre high climbing tower in the Climbing Forum was once again the meeting point for rope climbers from all over the world and the linchpin of numerous practical demonstrations. This diversity was again very well received by visitors from over 20 countries this year.

Pre-approved by ISA: from now on you can get CEUs also at this conference

The International Society of Arboriculture (ISA) in the USA has recognised the German Tree Care Conference as a professional education meeting. From 2019, the CEUs (Pre-Approved Continuing Education Units) will be available for all lectures in Augsburg. The ISA evaluated the contents of the conference and approved all contributions of the three-day event as professional training. Further information on the CEUs can be found here:

The conference with its lectures and discussions establishes an interactive tie between theoretical and practical tree care. During the three-day conference experts of different disciplines of arboriculture come together for an exchange of information.

Tree Climbing Forum
Arborists and tree climbers from all over Europe and overseas will find a program especially designed for their professional belongings. International speakers combine practical-orientated lectures with practical presentations on the climbing tower in the outdoor area.

Trade Show
The German Tree Care Conference is accompanied by a trade show on which 140 well-known exhibitors will present their innovations, products and services for every-day work in arboriculture. Furthermore, there will be various activities and presentations in the hall and outside area.

My conclusion

Dirk Dujesiefken

The combination of theory and practice is always our goal at the German Tree Care Conference. This year we had many innovations in this direction. This year I would like to highlight the demonstrations for root examinations on the area in front of the fair. Using vacuum excavators, trenches were created to protect the roots. Questions of root protection were discussed. All demonstrations were supplemented by lectures in the two forums. Thus the practitioner receives action-oriented suggestions and recommendations for daily work.

I am particularly pleased about the good, often even friendly atmosphere during the entire conference. The conversations and discussions were constructive - many things were discussed in a short way. The international exchange of experiences was again very fruitful. From the discussions I got again many suggestions for the coming tree care conference in Augsburg. So I am already looking very optimistically at the next event from 21 to 23 April 2020.

Best regards

Yours D. Dujesiefken
