Future Foresters Age 14+

Inspiring and equipping the foresters of the future

With the UK Government's committment to plant an additional 11 million trees by 2022 as part of their strategy to hit net zero carbon emissions by 2050, there are more opportunities for careers in forestry than ever before.

RFS Future Foresters provides links between schools, colleges, universities and employers to inspire people to pursue a career in forestry and then to support them through their chosen training pathways and into the workplace.
