The RSFS Monitor Woods Scheme and its data management programme ‘Canopy’ are designed to provide a unique research and learning resource across the forestry sector and for the wider public. The principle objective is to facilitate access to good practice in forestry and to encourage more and better managed woods to deliver an optimum range of multiple benefits for public and private good.
Simon will use his extensive forestry and environmental knowledge and facilitation skills gained during his career to date in both temperate and tropical forestry to plan, lead and execute a development strategy to promote the adoption of the Monitor Wood Scheme across Scotland’s forest sector; State, Private and Voluntary, with visits to assess and recruit suitable Monitor Woods.
Simon will also be responsible for data management, ensuring appropriate dissemination of information and learning, through provision and maintenance of Canopy, the scheme’s publicly accessible online data resource.
More information about the Monitor Woods Sceme will be appearing on the societies website www.RSFS.org.uk.
