Event description
Design and development of products and services to support the Forest for Cornwall and realise the business opportunities it presents

About this Event

Aim of the day:

In this third meeting of our Tevi Challenge Network on the topic of increasing tree cover in Cornwall, we’ll explore the local business opportunities presented by the Forest for Cornwall: a flagship programme to increase local canopy cover by 2% in the next 10 years, agreed recently by Cornwall Council in the Climate Action Plan.

During the first two meetings of this Tevi Challenge Network the business opportunities for creating local tree guards and tree nurseries were explored, as well as re-thinking planting practices. These three topics will be explored in more detail during this workshop.

Landowners, landscapers, arborists, environmental consultants, gardeners, nursery owners, sustainable product designers and material experts.
