Where to with Woodlands coming to Lancashire
The CLA (Country Land and Business Association) North regional team invite landowners and anyone with an interest in woodland creation and management in Cumbria and Lancashire to our ‘Where to with Woodlands’ North West Event. The event will be held on 1 February at Rural Auction Centre at Junction 36 from 10am to 3.30pm.
The event will feature a star line-up of speakers from The CLA, The Forestry Commission, Fountains Forestry, The Woodland Trust, Cumbria Community Forest and case studies featuring Lowther Estate, and Oldham-based charity, Life for a Life.
Chaired by former CLA President Ross Murray in his capacity as Forestry Commission Commissioner, who will provide a brief introductory overview of the future of woodland and forestry over the next few decades.
The event will highlight to farmers, landowners and their representatives the financial and other benefits (commercial and recreational/amenity value) that trees and woodlands can provide (small and large scale); to provide further guidance on how to expand, improve and protect woodlands; and to encourage those interested to seek funding and support that is available in the North West region.
The event is organised by the CLA and kindly supported by the Forestry Commission and Fountains Forestry.
