Royal Forestry Society publishes woodland meeting fixtures list

Around 100 woodland meetings are being organised by the 21 local divisions of the Royal Forestry Society (RFS) to cover aspects of tree management.

The get-togethers, across England, Wales and Northern Ireland will run from April to October, said RFS chief executive Dr John Jackson.

"The meetings provide an opportunity to tap into the years of first-hand experience of assembled foresters and owners in a way no text book can," said Dr Jackson.

Topics vary according to the venues, which include private estates, Forestry Commission woodlands, tree nurseries and sawmills.

Squirrel control, eradication of Rhododendron ponticum, chestnut canker, density levels, underplanting, harvesting and climate change were among the subjects aired at meetings last year.

Attendance can lead to continuous professional development points for the Institute of Chartered Foresters, Arboricultural Association, Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors and the Institute of Ecology and Environmental Management.
