We are thrilled to collaborate with the Royal Forestry Society’s Forestry Roots programme, a remarkable initiative designed to help 18 to 30-year-olds pursue their career aspirations in Forestry and Arboriculture through study and work placements.

The core principle of this programme is inclusion, welcoming young individuals regardless of background, gender, religion, disability, or financial circumstance. It aims to remove barriers to entering a career of great value in the outdoors and forestry environment, where opportunities are diverse and plentiful.
