The Future of Our Forests

I recently attended ‘Future Forestry’, the Institute of Chartered Foresters’ Annual Conference. The speakers were excellent and covered a wide range of topics – from the changing world in forest management through to forest research in a changing climate. The presentations are all now freely available to view on the ICF website if you’d like to know more.

The conference also saw a preview of (now released) films on tree diseases from the Forestry Commission and Defra. The films focus on the threat in particular from Phytophthora ramorum and Phytophthora kernoviae, and how we can all help to keep these organisms at bay.
