Event Details

England's Community Forests are within reach of more that 50% of the population. With local communities we have planted more than 16m new trees over the past 25 years.

Millions of people use and enjoy the new and growing forests that have been created. They provide a wide range of benefits for people and wildlife, as well as setting the scene for growth and jobs.

In 2019 our annual conference focuses on how we deliver the 25 Year Plan for the Environment, new opportunities to fund community forestry and we will start to develop our priorities for sector for the next 5 and perhaps 25 years, including some thought on how we might provide information/evidence to inform the Spending Review.

We have great speakers and the workshop will undoubtedly be lively as usual.

Places are limited so please book early.Tickets are available at £30 (plus fees £32.63) to cover refreshments and the cost of room hire.
