The Institute of Chartered Foresters (ICF) and the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS), along with the Mersey Forest, are teaming up to host this joint event focused on the value of woodland creation and management.

In light of changing land management priorities and the plans for planting 50 million trees as part of the Northern Forest announced in the government’s 25 Year Plan for the Environment, the Institute, Mersey Forest and RICS are bringing together an exceptional team of speakers to highlight current opportunities and challenge traditional thinking around this often undervalued asset class.

This is a great opportunity for professional foresters and rural surveyors, land agents and land owners, to get together and take a fresh look at where woodland could be adding value.
