Woodland meetings by Division

Every year, the RFS offers up a superb programme of woodland visits throughout England, Wales and Northern Ireland.  These visits showcase all aspects of forestry and woodland management and are excellent opportunities for members to meet, learn and exchange ideas whilst visiting varied and interesting woodlands, many of which are not accessible to the general public.  RFS members are entitled to join ANY visit, regardless of which division they are a member of, and will always receive a warm welcome from other divisions.  To attend a visit, RFS members should simply email their Divisional Honorary Secretary (email address supplied on the fixtures card and on the contacts page of QJF) or email
