Event description
A short course to address some of the ways in which woodlands can be managed to enhance their value to wildlife

About this event

Tutor: Mike Jones

Time: 11.00am to 12.30pm

Method: ZOOM online meeting

About:

This short course will address some of the ways in which woodlands can be managed to enhance their value to wildlife, and how this can be integrated with other management objectives, including timber production.

We will look at:

  • Ways of assessing the current condition of the woodland
  • Features of a woodland of most value to wildlife
  • Ways in which these can be improved.
  • We will also look at some of the legal issues relating to wildlife and how operations can be planned to avoid or minimise the risk of harm.

About the tutor:

Mike Jones graduated in Forestry in 1982, and spent 12 years working on private estates in Yorkshire, latterly as Head Forester on Garrowby Estate near York. After gaining a teaching qualification, he went to teach forestry at Newton Rigg College, which later became part of the University of Cumbria. In 2007 he joined the Forestry Commission, firstly in Scotland, then North England, where he was responsible for planning and surveys. During a career break from the Commission, Mike spent time as an independent consultant, advising owners on woodland management, and auditing forestry organisations against the UKWAS certification scheme.
