Pre-visit information

In the light of COVID 19, we urge all members to read our COVID 19 guideline notes before attending woodland meetings.  In addition, as an educational charity, the RFS must lead by example on the biosecurity measures recommended by the Forestry Commission (FC) and Defra to minimise the risk of spreading soil-borne tree infections. You can make a difference to stopping the spread of tree diseases. Clean boots are a first step!  For further information, please click here


Most all-day meetings start at around 10:00 and end at around 16:00, but please check precise details with the Local Honorary Secretary.

RFS meetings take place out in the woods in all weathers. Appropriate footwear and clothing should be worn. Please be aware of your health and safety at all times. Do not take risks that could put you or others in danger. Do not attempt to do anything that you do not feel confident about. Please follow instructions.

RFS members are welcome to attend events in any Division.
