This workshop is aimed at contractors, practitioners and forestry professionals working on Ancient Semi-Natural Woodland (ASNW) and Plantations on Ancient Woodland Sites (PAWS).
• Explore the theory of assessing PAWS
• Put theory into practice at our ancient woodland restoration site Fingle Woods –
part of an HLF-funded project in partnership with the National Trust
• Identify the different types of remnant features found in PAWS and assess the level of any threat
• Discuss how to protect and enhance remnant features Lunch and refreshments will be provided.
Members of the Institute of Chartered Foresters are able to claim six hours of CPD for participating in this event.
While species protection can often be the focus for woodland conservation, it is important not to overlook key habitat features, especially as this forms an integral part of the UK Woodland Assurance Scheme (UKWAS) which underpins FSC and PEFC certification, plus the UK Forest Standard (UKFS) in relation to Grown in Britain and Woodsure.
In this workshop we will share a pragmatic and methodical approach to identifying ancient woodland remnant features, assessing the severity of any threats, and maintaining, enhancing and protecting thosefeatures for the future.
