Held this year at the Bath & West Showground on Thursday 21 September and Friday 22 September, The Confor Woodland Show promises a valuable snapshot of the industry. Whether you work in forestry or are looking to find out more, there’s something for everyone.

You can also drop by the Confor tent at any time to chat with the team, grab a cup of tea, or join one of the seminars discussing issues currently impacting the sector. Topics this year include bioplastic innovations, trends in the forest marketplace, and modern management techniques.

Forest Workers Zone

The Forest Workers Zone will again be attending the Confor Woodland Show this year. Acting as a ‘one stop’ place to for people working in the practical side of the industry to come for information, advice and networking.

Organisations attending include Perennial, Land Workers Alliance, Forestry Contracting Association, Small Woods Association, Mid Wales and Marches Assessment Centre, The National Coppice Federation, and others campaigning on behalf of forest workers.

They’ll be holding practical demonstrations on skills such as chainsaw maintenance and tips for looking after our bodies, as well as being on hand to answer your questions or discuss any issues you are facing.

The theme of this year’s panel discussions is diversity – come along at 14:00 on both Thursday and Friday and let us know why you feel it’s important, what it means to you, and how we as an industry can widen the gene pool of the workforce.

Plus, we’re not forgetting the ever popular ‘Chainsaw Hold Out Contest’! See you there.
