Join us for an insightful talk into landscape and forestry management at Chatsworth.
Forester George Milne will delve into the challenges within the industry, providing insights into the complexities of species selection and innovative forestry management techniques. He will share his expertise on sustainable practices that drive the industry forward and how these are being implemented on the Devonshire estate.
Landscape Team Volunteer Co-ordinator George Hoey will then discuss how his team's work managing the Stand Wood and other areas of the estate has evolved to prioritise the welfare of wildlife and biodiversity within our landscapes.
Together, their perspectives offer an exploration of forestry and land management, from commerciality to wildlife-friendly transformation.
This year our winter talks will take place in our garden studio, The Old Potting Shed. Please arrive from 10.45am at the top garden gates where a member of staff will direct you to the venue. The Old Potting Shed is step free and has accessible facilities. If you have any questions about accessibility please contact email@example.com.
