FARM WOODLAND FORUM 2016
This year’s Farm Woodland Forum meeting will be in Ireland and run jointly by AFBI and Teagasc, with bookings and registration through AFBI. This is an excellent venue. Ballyhaise is a fine Agricultural College which supplies most of the farm woodland and forestry skills training in Ireland. It has good examples of various broadleaved woodland blocks and Agroforestry mixed in with 200ha of grassland-plenty of interest for the field visit. The second field vist would be to Loughgall.. The overall theme will be –“Farm Woodlands-Education, Research and Policy”,though we will welcome the usual mix of diverse papers.
The College has good teaching, meeting and eating facilities. There is no accommodation on site but the nearby (4miles) town of Cavan has good hotel options and plenty of eating/entertainment options. A special conference rate has been agreed for the Cavan Crystal Hotel.
