COVID-19 update (May 2021). Covid vaccination has started so we hope that courses given during summer and autumn will be perfomed in the traditional way and we will meet in person, with the complementary possibility to attend on-line.
 Treesearch is following the recommendations from the Public Health Agency of Sweden and the local restrictions from the Treesearch partners. Due to health concerns and  travel restrictions all courses to the end of june 2021 will be given as on-line courses.
