To mark the UK hosting the 26th UN Conference on Climate Change of the Parties (COP26) in November this year, the Forestry Climate Change Working Group, a cross forestry sector body which promotes adaptation of trees, woods and forests to environmental change, is organising the All England Woodland Resilience Awards.
There are two awards:
- Existing woodland management: focus on adaptive management
- New woodland creation: focus on adaptation and nature recovery/biodiversity
Any woodland owner, or agent on behalf of an owner, in England, from the private, public or voluntary sectors may enter the competition. The minimum area of woodland is 1 ha.
Entries will be assessed by a panel of three independent judges for each award on the basis of the principles of forest climate adaptation as set out in Managing England’s Woodlands in a Climate Emergency.
A certificate of achievement will be presented to the winning and highly commended entries at a high profile event later in the year at a date and venue to be announced.
To enter follow the details below:
The final deadline for all entries is midnight on Saturday 17th July.
