Farming for Foresters - Institute of Chartered Foresters

Institute of Chartered Foresters

With one third of UK woodlands on farms, it is more important than ever that foresters have a better understanding of farmers and farming and the huge opportunities that agroforestry brings. These online sessions will enable members to understand how best to integrate and better manage trees in the farmed landscape from a position of understanding farm systems and enterprises.

The first session will be a comprehensive introduction to farming enterprises and how trees can help meet farm challenges. Following on from this, the second session will take a deep dive into farm businesses and how to pay for trees on farms. The final webinar will focus on designing the farmed landscape. All three webinars will have a Q&A session to ensure your questions and ideas are responded to.

Thanks to the Forestry Skills Forum for generously contributing funding towards this series.

An All Access Ticket provides access to all sessions in the series.

The programme for each webinar will be:

09:15 – 10:15 – Presentation
