RFS Mentor Scheme

RFS Mentor Scheme for new members

As a new member of the RFS you can request a free introductory visit to receive informal guidance on getting started with management of your wood if you have bought or come into ownership of your wood within a year of joining. 

Test 1

You will be appointed a Mentor - an RFS member with appropriate qualifications and experience - who will visit your wood with you and give you verbal guidance to help you better understand your wood (e.g. species composition, constraints, opportunities) and your management options.

This visit is provided on a voluntary, goodwill basis on behalf of the RFS.

 

Full details, terms and conditions on application.

 

You are eligible for this scheme if:

  • you purchased or inherited your wood within 12 months of joining the RFS as a member,

and

  • you do not have an existing relationship with a professional woodland agent/manager,

and

  • your wood is around 3 hectares or more (7.4 acres) and is in England. In some cases the RFS will make exceptions to this criterion at its own discretion – please enquire.
