Cumbria Woodland Forum

Tuesday 20 May 2014, 12.00pm - 5.00pm

Water Quality Information Event - Tuesday 20th May, 12pm

This year the Cumbria Woodland Forum focuses on Water Quality. There has never been a more important time to understand and consider the role of forestry in providing and protecting water quality. During the next Rural Development Programme Forestry Commission grants focus on water and biodiversity. This is combined with increased risks posed by harvesting on catchments as a result of P ramorum on Larch.

Speakers include:

John Gallacher - Forest Ecologist with UPM Tilhill
Diffuse pollution: Prevention or Prosecution?

Vince Carter - Climate Change Advisor, Forestry Commision England
UKFS Forests and Water Guidelines

Trevor Marsh - Senior Environment Officier, Environment Agency
Water Framework Directive and Forestry

Vicky Bowman - Woodlands Officer, United Utilities
Forestry Best Practice on Catchments
