National Conference 21: Climate Smart Forestry – A Focus on the Fundamentals

The Institute of Chartered Forester’s National Conference 2021 and National Conference 2022 will both focus on ensuring our members are equipped to deliver on UK-wide tree planting aspirations currently proposed by the government. Meeting these aspirations requires expertise across all areas of the science and art of forestry and a thorough understanding of the fundamentals, including the site selection, soils, species choice and silvicultural practices that underpin the successful creation and management of our woodlands.
