Woodland Management Course
September 17 @ 10:00 am - 4:00 pm CEST
Owning a woodland is a rare privilege not open to many, but the planting of a new wood is a more realistic option and has a far larger impact on habitat and carbon capture. The Woodland management course will cover all aspects of planning, planting and managing a woodland. It is open to absolute beginners and people already engaged in woodland management. We will cover these key points: Reading the land, soil types, species choice, spacing, planning and planting Biodiversity, companion/appropriate species Weed control and mammalian protection Nutrition, disease management Managing your trees: thinning to promote growth, selection for products, regeneration Legal protection, felling licences, planting grants and support from national bodies Local markets and the balance between woodland health and contribution to income The course will be entirely outdoors and we will walk approximately one and a half miles, so please dress appropriately. Some of the day will be out looking at examples in the woods, some will be theoretical in our outdoor classroom.
