The Native Woodlands Discussion Group is a not-for-profit membership group. It is open to anyone interested in the ecology, management, history and use of native woodlands in northern Britain. Our members are an eclectic mixture of professional foresters, staff from government and non-government agencies, people who work with community woodlands, people involved in woodland history and archaeology, students, teachers and interested amateurs. We also have among our members artists, musicians, writers and others who draw inspiration as well as enjoyment from our native woods.
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.
