UK Forestry Standard Training
Delivered by the Forestry Commission in partnership with the Institute of Chartered Foresters, this informative series of webinars will provide an in-depth look at the UK Forestry Standard (UKFS).
The series will deliver training on all the requirements and recommendations of the UKFS, covering biodiversity, climate change, historic environment, landscape, people, soils and water.
Do you know how and why to protect forest soils, or how to design for water quality? Do you know 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 the UKFS in detail, and ensure you know how to make sure that you are meeting the requirements specified within.
Training will be delivered via both pre-recorded videos and live Q&A sessions. The training video for each subject area will be made available on the conference platform two weeks before the associated Q&A session, where delegates will have the opportunity to engage with a panel of experts. This innovative approach will allow delegates to engage fully with the content in advance of the live sessions, giving them plenty of time to consider the subject areas.
Forests and woodlands have a close relationship with our water resources, and forest management and water quality are closely linked. This seminar on the UKFS Guidelines on Water looks at the interaction between forest operations and water resources, meeting your legal requirements and maximising positive benefits through good design and management planning.
