Scottish Traditional Skills Training Centre - Maintaining and Managing Amenity, Farm and Estate Woodlands, Fyvie Castle, Aberdeenshire

25th March - 26th March
This 2-day Course will combine expert tuition with practical hands-on experience, to provide those attending with an understanding of the skills and techniques required to sustainably maintain and manage amenity, farm and estate woodlands. The extensive woodlands within the policies and designed landscape of The National Trust for Scotland’s Fyvie Castle and the surrounding area provide an ideal venue for the Course, which will address a broad range of skills and techniques for achieving effective, efficient and sustainable young woodland management – ranging from pruning, thinning and coppicing both hardwoods and softwoods – as well as the specific requirements necessary for creating wildlife habitats, keeping young trees healthy and vigorous, and enhancing the amenity value of woodlands to both the local community and visitors.

As delegate numbers are limited, and this very popular course does fill up quickly, an early response will secure your place. The course registration form is also attached.

If you have any questions at all or require any further information please do not hesitate to get in touch.

For further information, or assistance please contact Deborah Stockley or Marc Ellington: Telephone: 01888 511 347 or email: soundcraft@towiebarclay.co.uk
