The growing demand for firewood provides economic opportunities to manage native woodlands for income and to bring previously under managed woodland into sustainable management.

This half day event will demonstrate multi purpose woodland management for woodfuel and biodiversity and show how woodfuel can have wider environmental benefits beyond just being a renewable heating fuel.   The event is aimed at woodland owners and managers and will be held at Uncllys Farm, Bewdley in the Wyre Forest . The event will be based in the woodland with a discussion session with lunch and refreshments back at Uncllys Farm.

The event will focus on the following aspects:

  • Practical low impact machinery demonstration including tractor based forwarding, mini forwarder and tractor and winch options.
  • Discussion on managing woodlands for Biodiversity and income
  • Timber species and properties and markets
  • Firewood Markets
  • Access and Harvesting Considerations
  • Heartwoods—Woodland Support Schemes Available

The event costs £5.00 which includes refreshments and is targeted at Woodland Owners and Managers.
