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

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
