The conference will focus on the experience of people in the Highlands and Islands who have planted trees for a purpose – integrated with livestock management, sheltering land-based enterprises, providing raw materials and forest products, and boosting local biodiversity.
There will be contributions from experts on a range of topics, including woodland regeneration in Norway, upland agroforestry, mycorrhizal fungi, establishment ‘on the edge’, woodland flora and woodland crofts and housing. The conference will be addressed by Fergus Ewing, Cabinet secretary for Rural Economy and Connectivity on day two, while Woodland Trust CEO, Beccy Speight will open proceedings on day on.
