Online meeting

Did you know that you don’t need to cut down or harvest trees to reap economic benefits from them? Join Soil Association Scotland in this webinar to hear from experts, farmers and crofters about their experience leveraging trees-on-farm to support their farm’s resilience and bottom-line, and ask your questions about:

  • Exploring the potential of on-farm tree nurseries with Craig Shearer, managing director at Proven Plants who has years of experience collecting and processing tree seed, growing trees and of running tree nurseries.
  • Resilience and profitability: how trees can improve your animals’ welfare – shelter, forage, medicine.
  • The Woodland Carbon Code, what is it, what is changing and would it be suitable for your farm? With Andy Baker, from the Woodland Carbon Code.

Scottish Forestry will also be present to answer your questions.

FREE and open to crofters, farmers, land managers and foresters. Booking is required.
