Fuelling the Landscape – Woodland’s Growing Role in the Rural Economy

Fuelling the landscape is the theme of this year’s National Wood Fuel Conference on Thursday 13 October, which will focus on woodland’s growing role in the rural economy

Wood Fuel is developing as a significant driver for landscape scale management and the conference will look at how an integrated approach can support new woodland creation, aid flood prevention, add value to land and fuel the rural economy.

We are very grateful to Woodsure as their sponsorship and support for Grown in Britain helps us run this wood fuel themed day in Grown in Britain Week


Held at the Sandown Park Racecourse, the conference will offer a valuable opportunity to hear from experts on woodland creation and funding; catchment management; the future for biomass and district heating; new technologies and market opportunities at home and abroad.

Political Keynote Speakers have been invited to speak at this event along with representatives from the Environment Agency, Birmingham University and the Forestry Commission.
