Forestry Commission / CLA / Grown in Britain 2019 Forestry Conference: Supplying More Than Timber. Wednesday 9th October at Newbury Racecourse

Woodland in the South-East

We are delighted to invite you to our annual Forestry Conference 2019, to be held once again at the impressive Newbury Racecourse.
The conference aims to provide informative, practical advice for landowners, managers and farmers, highlighting how the forestry sector is about so much more than just timber.
It is an exciting time for the industry, and we will hear a keynote address from Sir Harry Studholme, chair of the Forestry Commission, about the opportunities and challenges facing it in a post-Brexit world.
This conference will bring together a range of voices from different backgrounds to explore how forestry offers a variety of benefits and services beyond wood, in the South East and further afield.
We will:

  • Review the current position of timber markets in the South East

  • Explore the strengths and limitations of supply chains

  • Look at ways the sector can help tackle issues around clean air and water quality

  • Consider what can be learnt from practices in other European countries

  • Hear about the experiences of successful businesses operating in the industry.
    Full conference agenda can be viewed
