Come and join the ATF at this Autumn’s field event, which takes place at Lowther Estate, Penrith.
The ATF’s Autumn field event is Thursday 11 October and will start with an hour’s introduction to the day from Ian Jack (recently retired director of Lowther Forestry Group ltd). We will then decamp for a 2.5 mile round trip walk to find out more about the history, ecology and management of some of the site’s veteran trees. This includes parkland trees, and the creation of new pasture woods. As always, there will be opportunity to debate and network with ancient tree experts.
Please keep checking on our website as the booking form will be live in mid August.
