Making Woodlands Pay

Much has changed in the economics of woodland management.  This high profile national conference offers a timely reassessment of the practical aspects of woodland economics, the newly emerging opportunities and challenges and examples of innovative approaches to value creation.

  • What are the economics of broadleaved and conifer woodland, large and small?
  • What are the economics of different silvicultural systems?
  • What is the outlook for timber and woodfuel prices?
  • How can landowners extract more sustainable value from their woods?

This conference will provide woodland owners and managers with essential information to help improve sustainable income from their woods and an opportunity to debate the big issue: how can woods pay?

Dr Steve Lee will present "Growing the Right Material: What do the markets want now and in the future?"

Dr Gary Kerr will present "The Economics of Different Silvicultural Systems
