Woodland Creation Design: North West EnglandResources Now Available
This series of workshops jointly hosted by Forestry Commission England and the Institute of Chartered Foresters will provide practical information and advice on how to design new woodlands that fit within the landscape and accommodate features of interest. Each workshop will go through the different stages of the design process based on the principles set out in the UK Forestry Standard. Delegates will gain a clear understanding of Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) regulations for afforestation, including the information land managers need to gather and how this can be obtained. There will also be the opportunity to put any questions you might have to Forestry Commission staff.
In preparation for the workshops delegates will be asked to complete and return an EIA enquiry form based on an example site. Guidance will be provided on how to complete the activity which should take no more than 1 hour. During the workshop delegates will continue to work through the case study to produce a Woodland Creation Design Plan. In addition to the workshop activity presentations will be given on choosing an appropriate site, species selection and operational plans.
Tickets are £49 for the day and include lunch and refreshments.
Registration is mandatory and booking is open to all. As spaces are limited, early booking is recommended so you don’t miss your opportunity to attend this valuable CPD event.
