As a charity, we depend on the generosity of volunteers - you don't need a forestry background to support the work we do. Anyone with an interest in woodlands can apply to volunteer for a number of projects around the country. Whilst developing your own skills and interests with us you will also be contributing to the cause of improving woodlands and providing a real benefit to the conservation of wildlife and sustainable management of forests.


Volunteering opportunities include:

  • Help maintain RFS woods to a high standard. There are regular volunteering work parties organised at Hockeridge and Pancake Wood in partnerhsip with the Chiltern Society. See here for the current schedule of work parties.
  • Join a Divisional Committee to help organise activities to support the RFS 
  • Invite the RFS to visit your woods.
  • Visit a school or college in your area to speak to students about woodland management.
  • Contribute an article to the Quarterly Journal of Forestry.
  • Support the RFS presence at countryside shows.
  • Recruit new RFS members in your area.
  • Support RFS fundraising activities.

If any of these areas are of interest please contact the RFS at
