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 events@rfs.org.uk

Overview: Opened in 1840, this is one of the original 'Magnificent Seven' cemeteries which circled inner London, designed to relieve the chronic shortage of burial spaces in churchyards.  It is Grade 1 Listed on the English Heritage Register of Parks and Gardens.  There are over 60 species of trees and over 200 species of moths and butterflies have been recorded here.  There are 35,000 monuments and famous names amongst the 200,000 burials include Emmeline Pankhurst, John Wisden (of the Cricketing Almanac), Samuel Cunard (cruise ships) and more recently, the actor, Brian Glover.

Biosecurity

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
