ICF Regions

Institute of Chartered Foresters – Regional Groups

ICF supports nine regional groups across the UK which provide regular events for members in their designated areas.

Events cover a wide range of topical issues and important developments in the forestry and arboricultural industry and typically involve seminars, discussion groups and site visits in all regions throughout the UK.

Regional events play an important part in Continuing Professional Development and offer excellent opportunities for keeping up-to-date with new ideas and challenges, networking with fellow professionals, and social interaction with colleagues and peers working in your area.
