From the practical and theoretical to the historic, this year's programme of events announced by the Royal Forestry Society (RFS) covers a broad spectrum of issues.
Local RFS Divisions will be looking at silviculture, butterflies and grazing in Eastbourne.
There will be talks on nature conservation in woodlands and forests in Wrexham; the spotlight falls on ravine woodlife and nationally important species in the Wye Valley and switches to nature conservation in Kingsbridge, Devon.
Restoration of Plantations on Ancient Woodland Sites (PAWS) is the focus in Grizedale Forest, Cumbria; Appleton Le Moors, Yorkshire; Baddesley Clinton in Warwickshire and Earls Colne, in Essex.
Biomass, broadleaved management, community woodlands and restocking, forestry research, management of parklands, planting difficult sites, red needle blight, veteran trees and historic landscapes are some of the other topics covered throughout the spring, summer and autumn.
RFS chief executive Dr John Jackson said: "Between them, our 21 local divisions organise a fantastic array of meetings and talks which are open to RFS members across the country.
"These meetings enable us to tap into a very rich vein of expertise across England, Wales and Northern Ireland."
