Woodlands of Ireland is pleased to announce the 2017 conference, Native Woodlands 20 Years On: Progress, Opportunities and Challenges, which will take place at Knockranny House Hotel, Westport, Co. Mayo on Monday 9th and Tuesday 10th of October.

This three-day event will bring together foresters, policy-makers, scientists, conservationists and the private woodland sector to chart the progress Ireland has made over the past 20 years.
Delegates will hear from leading Irish and international experts on relevant topics, including native woodland ecology, updates on policy and legislation, ecosystem services, flood management, pests and diseases, seed and stock requirements, education and more.
