Native Woodlands Conference 2018

30th April & 1st May 2018

The Green Economy Foundation team enjoyed a sunny couple of days out at the Native Woodlands Conference ’20 Years A-Growing’ in Co. Wicklow earlier this month.

Organised by Woodlands of Ireland, the conference was a celebration of Ireland’s native woodlands.  A busy day with more than 20 speakers and then a field trip looking at native woodland managment and establishment projects in the area.  The NWC provided in-depth analysis and discussion of many of the important issues surrounding native woodland establishment, management and education and a really great chance to catch up with friends and colleagues in the industry.

There were many good thoughts to take away and a huge amount of material for further discussion.  Videos of all of the speakers will be available to view at the conference website soon, see

Many thanks to Declan Little and his team for organising such a useful and positive event.
