GIS - Management Planning using myForest


Date: Friday, 19 October 2018

Instructor: Paul Orsi 

Location:  Room LR1, Shuttleworth College, Shuttleworth Business Centre, Old Warden Park, Biggleswade SG18 9DX


myForest is a free to use online web tool designed to help woodland owners and managers produce management plans.  The system allows users to map their woodlands, add information (including inventory and work programme) and produce management plans using Forestry Commission England’s template. 

The course will take participants through the whole management planning process, from a woodland survey through to producing management plans that can be approved by a Forestry Commission Woodland Officer. Participants will learn how to create a myForest account, map a woodland area, add attribute data and generate a management plan and associated maps. We will look at what is required from a good management plan and how myForest can help you with this.

This course is aimed at owners of small woodlands who are keen to learn how to create their own management plan.

Duration: 9.30am to 4.00pm 

Price: £85.00 (RFS members) or £100.00 (non RFS members)

Note: Course attendees are advised to bring packed lunches as lunch is not provided.  Alternatively, there is a College cafeteria where hot and cold food and drink can be purchased.
