Develop in-depth understanding of the UK Forestry Standard.

In-depth professional training on all the requirements and recommendations of UKFS. Covering biodiversity, climate change, historic environment, landscape, people, soil, water and general practice (run twice): nine modules over three years.

Do you know why biodiversity is important in forest management or how to manage to enhance it? Do you know how to design woodlands for people? What records you need to keep, to show that you are managing sustainably? Leading research experts and practitioners in each field will guide us through UKFS requirements and how to make sure that you are meeting it.
