Background

Woodland creation has a major role in mitigating climate breakdown and as a means of natural flood management.

Currently with 13% woodland cover the UK has about one third the European average and with only 10% England is significantly lower than the UK average. At 8%, in the area defined by the Northern Forest Project (NFP), it is lower still.

Initiatives such as plans for a Northern Forest will give a major impetus to addressing this need but what more do we need to do if we are to reach the Government’s target of 12% woodland cover in England by 2060 and achieve 50 million trees planted for the Northern Forest Project (NFP) over a 25-year period?

Come and find out!

This is a full day event from 09.30 - 16.30.

The delegate fee of £25 includes refreshments and lunch.
