An example of the most popular forums in 2013, and a taste of the themes for discussion at the events, was Trees Matter, which covered wide ranging questions concerning trees in the wild, parkland, urban environments and as a resource.   The panel featured Colin Tudge, whose books include “The Secret Life of Trees”.



2013 also saw the inauguration of the Rubbish Cup, in honour of early spring greener, Ruth Morgan.   The trophy, made from recycled material, will be presented annually as part of the Spring Greens photography activities.
