RFS Excellence in Forestry Awards cast spotlight on exceptional forestry

This year the Royal Forestry Society Excellence in Forestry Awards are looking to cast the spotlight on exceptional woods and forestry skills and educational projects across Central and Eastern England.

Tilhill are delighted to be once again sponsoring the Bede Howell Award for Excellence in Silviculture as part of the Excellence in Forestry Awards 2024.

Royal Forestry Society (RFS) Chief Executive Christopher Williams says:

“We know there are incredible woodlands and projects across the region and are excited to hear about them.

“In this era of climate change, it has never been more important to manage our woodlands and forests well. We need to have a skilled and knowledgeable workforce to make sure our landscapes can adapt and that our children and young people understand the important part our woodlands have to play in all our futures.

“This competition will help identify those that are leading the way, and help share their knowledge and experiences more widely across the UK. It recognises woodlands and projects large and small.”

There are five categories.

Find details of all the awards on the RFS website.

Entries are welcome from Royal Forestry Society Members in the counties covered by our Nottingham/Lincolnshire, Midlands, East Anglia and North West Midlands Divisions and from Non-Members across the region.

All entries must be received by 30th April 2024.

Awards are sponsored by: Savills, Trees Please, Tilhill Forestry, Forestry Journal, Woodland Trust, PEFC and FSC.
