Neil will be speaking at a Soil Association event in Leven, Fife on the 4th of December 2012. Trees: A Valuable Resource, is a practical day looking at trees: from planting and pruning to processing; how to manage existing woodland; opportunities for selling wood and wood fuel, and what you need to know to successfully procure a wood-fired boiler.
Funded by the Scottish Government via the Scottish Rural Development Programme, the day is primarily aimed at farmers and woodland owners who are looking to make the most from their existing timber resource.
Neil will be speaking alongside Mike Strachan and David Bruce from Forestry Commission Scotland, and will be helping those attending the sold out event to understand the practicalities and economic case for the 100kW boiler installation on Durie Farm, which will also be visited during the day.
More details on the event can be found on the Soil Association website.
