Evolving the Forest is a three-day international gathering, bringing together creative thinkers and doers to explore the forest and how we live with trees. Convened by art.earth, the Royal Forestry Society and Timber Strategies, the event takes place at Dartington Hall from 19-21 June.
Adam Milton, Carpenter Oak Founding Director will be part of the Future Forests roundtable discussion on the Friday from 9.30am, exploring the UK timber industry and how it has been of central importance in UK forest policy for much the last 100 years. Do we need to renew our focus on timber or concentrate on other priorities? If timber production isn’t the primary motivation is the Forestry Act still fit for purpose?
This session will discuss the role of the public policy in setting the agenda for UK forestry for the next 100 years.
