With the COP26 international climate summit taking place later this year, a new England Tree Strategy and a new National Forest for Wales, this online event offers a timely opportunity to come together to chart the course towards meeting these stretching aims.

We are now open for registrations! Take advantage of our early bird rate of just £45 - limited numbers are available.

This online interactive conference is designed for landowners and managers, foresters, land agents, rural advisors, sustainability leaders, policy advisers, regulators, researchers and woodland specialists across all sectors, to tackle the unique challenges of how to significantly increase woodland creation and management in England and Wales.

Building on the success of the inaugural 2020 Conference, delegates will gain invaluable insight into:

  • The business case for landowners and managers to become involved in woodland creation and management: grants, revenue and opportunity costs.
  • Innovations in tree planting programmes.
  • Opportunities in agroforestry and urban tree planting.
  • Actions that will grow capability for woodland creation and management: nursery stock, biosecurity, skills and infrastructure.

View our programme here. To secure your place, click on 'Register' at the top of this page. Our early bird ticket price on sale now is just £45 per person, including full access to content on both 26th and 27th May. There are discounts for three or more delegates from the same organisation when booked in the same booking.

 The conference will include an exhibition zone where you can meet sponsors and partners, and online networking so you meet fellow delegates.

We are delighted to welcome Strutt & Parker and John Clegg & Co as our headline sponsors; The Forest Canopy Foundation, Forest Carbon and Lockhart Garratt as sponsors, and Grown in Britain as our lead partner to deliver this event.
