Woodland Meetings

The RFS offers a superb programme of woodland visits throughout England, Wales and Northern Ireland showcasing all aspects of forestry and woodland management. These are excellent opportunities for members to meet and exchange ideas while visiting a wide variety of woodlands, many of which are not accessible to the public.  Members are entitled to join any visit. To attend, email the Divisional Honorary Secretary (email address supplied on the listing) or events@rfs.org.uk
