Events Calendar

Small Woods offer an array of events throughout the year for both members and non-members. These range from visits to members woodlands to meet and greets at shows across the uk. A full range of upcoming events can be found in the course calendar below with categories as follows:

Members Woodlands: These events are where both members are given the opportunity to visit other members woodlands and often discuss management techniques, sharing advice and getting a taste for what other members are up to!

Meet and Greets: This is the opportunity for us to meet you and for you to find out more about what Small Woods is up to at shows all across the UK.

WoodsMeet: Being a new type of event, WoodsMeet’s are the opportunity for members and us here at Small Woods to meet one another and exchange views and input to the wider work being done by the association on members behalf.

Other Visits: Throughout the year a number of other visits will be taking place including visits to community woodlands, demonstrations, woodland businesses and more. Keep an eye on our Events Calendar below for more!
