A course run by the University of Cambridge based at Madingley Hall to the west of Cambridge set in a Capability Brown landscape, and offering a very high standard of accommodation and food. The course starts with dinner on Friday and runs until lunch on Sunday.

Three of the sessions will look in detail at the identification of Britain's native trees and shrubs - illustrated with slides and specimens - plus handouts. This will be backed up by two outdoor sessions, one to look at trees in the Cambridge Botanic Gardens, the other at the trees in the grounds at Madingley. There will also be a session on the different uses to which our trees have been put.
