The Scottish Skill Training Centre - Maintaining & Managing Amenity, Farm,and Estate Woodlands

24th March - 25th 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.

The Course is aimed at Estate, Farm and Landscape Maintenance staff, Private Individuals and Landowners, as well as members of Community Woodland Associations, Conservation Organisations, and Local Authority Employees.


The course will take place at the Scottish Traditional Skills Training Centre at The National Trust for Scotland’s Fyvie Castle, Aberdeenshire, AB53 8EP. The cost is £175 per delegate inclusive (no VAT is charged as the STSTC is a registered charity). For more details or to book please call 01888 511 347 or email: soundcraft@towiebarclay.co.uk
