ICF National Conference

The Institute of Chartered Foresters hosts a conference each spring, which attracts UK and international attention from the world of forestry and arboriculture. Both members and non-members are invited to attend, with past conferences having strong themes of urban forestry and collaboration between built and natural environment professions. These events provide the opportunity to hear ground-breaking research in the field, and to network with the leading forestry and arboricultural consultants, organisations, and professionals.
