Yorwoods is often successful in securing funding to offset the cost of courses for training woodland owners, managers, agents, gamekeepers, forest workers and others who derive an  income from the forestry or timber sector.  Courses that we have organised and can organise, dependent upon the funding, include:

  • Arboriculture and Bats
  • Basic Tree Survey
  • Basic Wildfire Training
  • Best Practice Burning Workshop
  • Chainsaw Courses (though not Units 201, 202)
  • Charcoal Kilning
  • Coppice Management and Produce
  • Introduction to Small Woodland Management
  • Managing Woodland for Wildlife
  • Peatland Management
  • Pruning and Thinning
  • Upland Woodland Management and Black Grouse


We also run a range of ignite courses, all related to woodfuel management, processing and delivery.  They are:

  • Ignite Woodfuel Production and Supply – 3-day course
  • Ignite Managing Woods for Woodfuel
  • Ignite Firewood Production and Supply
  • Ignite Woodfuel Quality Standards


If you would like more information on any of our courses, whether currently scheduled or with a view to organising bespoke training for your organisation, please contact Erica for details.  Information on all courses will be placed on the Events page and sent out regularly by e-mail.
