"Balancing the needs for access, biodiversity and income in any woodland setting is a challenge, even for experienced foresters and owners," said the organiser.
Llais y Goedwig, a network of community woodlands in Wales, continued: "If you add in volunteers and working with a diverse group of people, management can be fraught."
But alongside the challenges were rewards, said Llais y Goedwig, which has published a timetable for the roadshows on how best to manage your community woodlands.
Each of the 4 events will combine the theory of management with the intuitive practical skills honed in workshops by leading experts.
The roadshow starts on 17 July at Troserch Woods, Swansea, before pulling up on 24 July at Montgomeryshire Wildlife Trust in Abermule.
From there it heads north to Moelyci near Tregarth, Bangor, on 7 August, before pulling up on 11 September at Blaen Bran Community Woodland, Cwmbran.
