LI Webinar: Landscape & Woodland Design: Integrated woodland design

What is the role for landscape architecture in woodland creation? This webinar will summarise the UK Forestry Standard (UKFS) landscape and forests requirements and practice guidelines. We will discuss integrated design and how to work in a holistic way by considering landscape context and by putting woodland design principles into practice. We will explore a case study of how a Landscape Character Appraisal delivered a woodland creation scheme with multiple benefits.

Learning outcomes:

  • Awareness of the UK Forestry Standard Landscape & Forests requirements
  • Awareness of the UKFS seven Woodland Design Principles
  • Awareness of the Forestry Commission Woodland Design Process.

This webinar is accepted as part of the Continuing Professional Development (CPD) required to be completed by LI members. The LI Code of Practice requires members to undertake a minimum of 25 hours of CPD activity each year.
