VANDALISM, warm climate and a lack of water are some of the biggest threats to ­Mildura’s tree population, according to a local environmental group.

Titled Trees = Life Forum: Green and Healthy Living in our Region, the seminar will feature keynote addresses by Gardening Australia presenter Sophie Thomson and Homewood Consulting arborist Ben Kenyon.
