Plantation forests to native forests: Delivering multiple ecosystem benefits in a changing climate

This year, the Institute’s National Study Tour will be held in Aberdeen and Deeside in conjunction with the European Forest Institute’s annual conference, ‘Plantation forests to native forests: Delivering multiple ecosystem benefits in a changing climate’.

The increasing global demand for wood-based products and the impact of climate change on European forests have focused a spotlight on the role, challenges, and opportunities that plantation forests and native forests have to offer. The National Study Tour aims to examine the potential risks and opportunities of different types of forests in delivering multiple ecosystem benefits in a changing climate. Scientists, policy-makers, and practitioners from the Institute of Chartered Foresters and the European Forest Institute will hopefully come together for an informed and synergistic discussion on these issues.

On Thursday 19 September, we will meet at the Village Hotel, Aberdeen, for an early evening series of scene-setting talks before an informal Study Tour Dinner. On Friday 20 September, minibuses will transport us on our visits to:

  • Durris Forest
  • Glen Tanar Estate
