Woodland Creation in Loch Lomond & the Trossachs National Park

An online discussion panel on opportunities and challenges for woodland creation in Loch Lomond and The Trossachs National Park

About this event

Want to find out more about opportunities and the support available for creating woodland at different scales? Join our panel for an online discussion and to hear about the findings of a SEFARI research fellowship in the Loch Lomond and Trossachs National Park on constraints and opportunities for woodland creation. Rob Mc Morran from Scotland’s Rural College will present key findings, with additional inputs from the Loch Lomond and Trossachs National Park, Scottish Forestry and forestry consultants and land managers undertaking woodland schemes. Join us to find out about:

• Key constraints and opportunities for woodland creation (Fellowship findings – Rob Mc Morran)

• Guidance and support available for woodland creation (Tom Davies, Scottish Forestry)

• The role of the Loch Lomond and Trossachs National Park Authority and Trees and Woodland Strategy (Simon Franks, National Park Woodland Officer)

• Recent woodland creation schemes in the National Park (Andrew Vaughan, Till Hill and local land managers)

The second half of the workshop will be dedicated to discussion and panel members will be available to answer your questions. The workshop is free and open to all!
