This course is a comprehensive exploration of the natural history and management of trees and woodlands and is suitable for anyone with a strong personal or professional interest in the status of woodlands in the British countryside.
Oliver Rackham shares his encyclopaedic knowledge through a series of illustrated lectures on woodland themes, complemented by field excursions to some of the finest ancient woodlands in Suffolk and Essex, plus a visit to the Suffolk Records Office to look at a variety of secondary sources.
Please note that brisk walking is involved on most days, but also a fair amount of standing and discussing, so you may find that bringing a chair-type walking stick is useful.
The content is appropriate for anyone wishing to contribute to their Continuing Professional Development (CPD) requirements.
Please note that we are aware that this course runs during the first week of the London Olympic Games. There will be a TV available for anyone who wants to catch up on an event or two!
Oliver Rackham OBE is one acknowledged as the national expert on the history and ecology of woodlands in the UK and author of major books on the history of the British countryside.
