Event Details

GIS - Management planning using myForest

myForest is a free to use online web tool designed to help woodland owners and managers, produce management plans.  The system allows users to map their woodlands, add information (including inventory and work programme) and produce management plans using Forestry Commission England’s template. 

The course will take participants through the whole management planning process, from a woodland survey through to producing a management plans that can be approved by a Forestry Commission Woodland Officer. Participants will learn how to create a myForest account, map a woodland area, add attribute data and generate a management plan and associated maps. We will look at what is required from a good management plan and how myForest can help you with this.

This course is aimed at owners of small woodlands who are keen to learn how to create their own management plan.
