[I]n partnership with Cumbria Woodlands and FSC UK, the Woodland Trust is inviting landowners and forestry professionals across Cumbria to a workshop in Thirlmere.
The event is aimed at providing an overview of certification requirements relating to Planted Ancient Woodland (PAWS) management, providing access to experts and facilitating the exchange of experiences and understanding between forest managers.
Louise Hackett, Restoration Project Manager for the Woodland Trust, says “The research and evidence behind what makes the restoration of ancient woodland so important is often not well known. We hope this event will shed some light on the detail behind certification requirements and help support decision making for those involved in the management of PAWS across Cumbria”.
Neville Elstone, Director of Cumbria Woodlands, says “I’m really pleased to welcome a range of national experts on both PAWS and certification to Cumbria. The day looks set to be vital for those involved in the management of PAWS woodlands, especially those seeking or holding certification.”
This event is fully funded by FSC UK and the Woodland Trust and there will be no cost for attendees. Attendees will be asked to arrive at 09.30 for a 10.00 start, and the afternoon outdoor session is expected to end by 15.30. Lunch will be provided.
