Forest Resilience: From Seed to Sawmill (POSTPONED)
Unfortunately, we have decided to postpone this event until 2021. Rescheduled date TBC.
Thank you for your patience and understanding.
The Midlands Regional group are holding an engaging and thought-provoking event looking into the resilience and adaptation of all parts of the forest supply chain from seed through to sawmill. It will take place on 13 October 2020 from 9.30AM until 4.30PM in Whitchurch.
The morning sessions will be held at Welshampton Hall, Whitchurch, and will include speakers from the private sector, Forest Research and the Forestry Commission. The session will explore the following topics:
- Climate change adaption & species choice
- Tree breeding
- Forest genetics & UK timber tree health

The afternoon session will involve a nursery tour of the nearby Maelor Forest Nursery, which markets around 28 million trees per year to the industry. Each aspect of nursery growing will be explored and you will be treated to an exclusive tour of the facilities.
