ASH CONFERENCE - 1st November - 9-5 - National School of Forestry, Ambleside

What can I do about ash dieback? What should I plant instead of ash?

It's exactly five years since ash dieback was announced to be present in the wider environment in the UK. Are we any clearer about the way forward? This conference will help you decide how to respond to get the best outcome for your woodland situation.

The ash conference brings together international and UK experts on ash dieback to disseminate information and be available for discussion. It will be an engaging and dynamic day suitable for all practitioners and anyone interested in the future of ash in Cumbria and the wider northern uplands.

The day will also provide valuable networking opportunities and a delicious lunch!
