We are marking two notable milestones in our history this summer, both supported by new publications.
Woodland Heritage’s latest annual Journal has a central theme of the charity’s Silver Jubilee, with the final day of its members’ Field Weekend this year coinciding to the day with its incorporation 25 years ago on 15th June 1994. As ever, the Journal is packed full of features and news covering the entire timber supply chain from forestry through to examples of some of the finest uses of timber in building and furniture.
Another notable achievement for Woodland Heritage is the end of a first decade of support for research into Acute Oak Decline (AOD), the results of which are summarised in a new 32-page Newsletter produced in collaboration with Forest Research.
“2019 is a year when Woodland Heritage can really look back with pride on what it has achieved as a charity over a quarter of a century. One of the main highlights has been the £2m spent in the last ten years on helping to advance scientific knowledge as to the causes of AOD and how effective management of oaks can really help make the difference between death and remission for individual trees”, said Guy Corbett-Marshall, Chief Executive of Woodland Heritage. “Looking ahead, the growing interest in how forestry can help tackle climate change, whilst yielding valuable UK-grown timber that is now seen as offering an ever-expanding range of end-uses, suggests that the next 25 years offer exciting potential for Woodland Heritage.”
The latest Journal is free to members of Woodland Heritage.
