The Native Woodlands Discussion Group is a not-for-profit membership group. It is open to anyone interested in the ecology, management and history of native woodlands in Scotland and northern Britain more generally.
Our membership includes an eclectic mix of ecologists, foresters, staff from government and non-government agencies, people who work with restoration projects or community woods, people involved in woodland history and archaeology, students, teachers and many others who share our interests. We also have among our members artists, musicians, writers and others who draw inspiration as well as enjoyment from our native woods. Our diversity makes for great discussion and our membership’s expertise fosters learning and sharing opportunities.
Each year we hold an Annual Excursion for members, including short seminars and field visits to woodlands. The AGM is held during the Excursion, and there is also a ceilidh to give members another opportunity to let down their hair.
Workshops on various subjects suggested by members are arranged throughout the year.
We also run an annual Woodland History conference.
