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

Overview

This year, the RFS has taken a fresh approach to the Whole Society Meeting with the aim of delivering an engaging and informative event while keeping our members, volunteers and hosts safe.  We are delighted to offer three wonderful days of forestry in mid-July but scaled back in anticipation of returning to a full-scale WSM in 2022.  We would like to give sincere thanks to the North West Midlands Divisional Committee and hosts for planning with such optimism in difficult circumstances, and who are kindly hosting again with their full original programme in 2022.
