Vikki Bengtsson, VETREE

Veteran Tree Network

VETree is an international seminar organized by the VETree Project. The seminar brought together a wide range of participants, everything from policy makers and arborists to cultural historians and ecologists from eight different countries.

We chose Trollhättan partly because a wish had been expressed to hold the meeting there, and we had also received an invitation by the town of Trollhättan to hold the meeting there, but also because of the great passion of Jörgen Olsson at the Environmental Department of the town of Trollhättan and, of course, because of the beautiful trees that have been preserved in Trollhättan!

The meeting venue, Fassetten, which we had chosen as our conference facility met all our expectations  and requirements to make the meeting a success. Very good rooms, superb dining, and excellent service. In addition to participating in the conference, we also made some trips where a bus brought us to various sights. We really appreciated the excellent service by the bus driver from Karl-Evert’s bus company.
