Event Details

Course Tutor: Professor Julian Evans OBE FICFor

Course Description:

An introductory course for those new to or unfamiliar with owning or caring for woodland. The first lecture explores the topics of what’s involved, how much time it takes, the many ways one can enjoy a wood, questions of access, and the basics of silviculture.

The second lecture examines boundaries and other legal responsibilities, insurance questions, researching woodland history, elements of planning and some management essentials.

A  special feature will be an afternoon visit to the nearby Northdown Plantation, Julian's own wood, with stops looking in details at point introduced in the lectures.
