 This is a great learning and networking opportunity for owners and managers of  ancient woodland, particularly where native broadleaves have been replaced by non-native  conifer species.  The workshop will also be of interest to owners of ancient woodland that  may have problems with invasive species such as rhododendron, laurel or Himalayan  balsam.    

 After a morning presentation and discussions there will be a site visit to a local   ancient woodland with semi-natural and non-native species stands.  It is designated as a  Plantation on Ancient Woodland Site (PAWS).  The event is free and aimed  at woodland owners and professionals.  Places will be allocated on a first come, first served  basis.

Please wear suitable outdoor wear for the site visit.  Buffet lunch is included.  The event will finish at 3.00pm.
