Woodland Management and Conservation

This popular courses is now in its twelfth year. You will visit a variety of woodland sites to examine their different management regimes, and consider the effect of management on woodland flora and fauna. Being able to identify existing species is critical when making management decisions, so time will be spent on identification of native trees, shrubs, woodland plants and other indicator species. The course is mostly out of doors, in woodlands on the Orielton estate and the surrounding area, making observations, and analysing the effects of different types of management. In the evenings there will be slide talks, discussions and practical work to consolidate skills and knowledge. This course is aimed at everyone with an interest in the ecology and history of woodland, and the techniques of practical management and conservation, whether professional or amateur. It is particularly suitable for those who want to learn more about management techniques in order to make decisions about their own areas of woodland.

Jerry Dicker is a working arboricultural consultant with an interest in sustainable woodland and coppice crafts. He is a warden for a community woodland and a voluntary speaker for the Woodland Trust.
