Funding to Attend CCFG Events
Heritage is a leading forestry charity. They are strong supporters of
CCFG and offer bursaries to members of our group who wish to attend
events both at home and overseas. Students and young foresters, in
particular, are encouraged to apply for support, but there are no age
or other limitations. Each application is judged on its own merit.
Preference is given to those engaged in forestry and interested in the
production of high quality timber. Woodland Heritage generally requests
that recipients produce a report for the Woodland Heritage Journal
and/or the CCFG Newsletter.
