Petersfield tree expert Robin Hart and Craig Mills, Head Ecologist at Coombes UK, will be giving presentations, with a question-and-answer session at the end of Craig’s presentation.
An event spokesman said: “Planet Petersfield is our home, so come along and find out how we can all make it a better and a greener place to live by building a sustainable future one event and one town at a time.”
