England’s Community Forests – 2020 Conference

Each year the family of Community Forests in England hold a conference to look at progress and identify future opportunities.

The 2020 Conference is on 26th March at the Birmingham Midland Institute, from 9:30 to 4:00.

In 2020 our annual conference focuses on trees and carbon. With trees in the media almost daily and new targets and aspirations for new woodland creation to lock up carbon as a response to climate change, what is the role of Community Forests in helping to achieve these new targets? What is the role of trees and woodlands in mitigating the likely impacts of climate change? How quickly can we respond to the challenge of a dramatic increase in levels of planting?

We have great speakers and the workshop will undoubtedly be lively as usual.

The conference costs £32.63 (strange number due to fees on the website!), to help cover some of the costs for the day.

Further information about the great list of speakers we have lined up and booking deatails are available from this link: 


We hope you will be able to join us.

With our best wishes for a happy 2020.
