About:  

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 4.30pm

Price: £85.00 for RFS members / £100.00 for non RFS members

Note: Course attendees are advised to bring a packed lunch as lunch is not provided.  Tea, coffee, water and biscuits will be provided on arrival and at suitable breaks in the classroom sessions.  If required, lunch can be purchased at the onsite college cafeteria.
