Woodland Creation Symposium – Save the Date! November 2022

Last November I organised an online Symposium on Ancient Woods and Trees across two evenings in November. It came off really well and was well attended by volunteers in Wales and elsewhere.

I am planning a similar event this year but with the theme of Woodland Creation and tree planting. I know lots of you are already involved in regular tree planting and there’s always plenty of interest and enquiries into tree planting so I  know this will be a hot topic!

So far I have the dates and times to share with you but the exact ‘line-up’ in still to be confirmed… we’ll hear from staff and volunteers across Wales and the UK… watch this space for more details.


Dates and Times:

Part One – Wednesday 16 November 2022, 7.00-8.40 pm

Part Two – Wednesday 23 November 2022, 7.00-8.40 pm

There will be some Wales focused content but also plenty of UK-wide relevance so any of our volunteers are most welcome to join in.
