Accelerating Woodland Creation & Management

This online interactive conference is designed for landowners and managers, foresters, land agents, rural advisors, sustainability leaders, policy advisers, regulators, researchers and woodland specialists across all sectors, to tackle the unique challenges of how to significantly increase woodland creation and management in England and Wales.

The 2021 event took place on 26th and 27th May 2021. The next Accelerating Woodland Creation & Management Conference is scheduled for 30th and 31st March 2022.

Missed the 2021 event? Don't worry, you can view our programme and gain access to recordings here.

At our 2022 conference, delegates will gain invaluable insight into:

  • The business case for landowners and managers to become involved in woodland creation and management: grants, revenue and opportunity costs.
  • Innovations in tree planting programmes.
  • Opportunities in agroforestry and urban tree planting.
  • Actions that will grow capability for woodland creation and management: nursery stock, biosecurity, skills and infrastructure.

Participants

This is an event for those whose work is focused on woodland and forestry, as well as those who work to other priorities but want to be involved.
