The CCFG Wales field visit was held on 5th October by kind invitation of the Mostyn Estate. Phil Davies, one of our most loyal members, offered to arrange the visit to show the group around the estate as this year’s CCFG Wales field visit. His father, Richard Davies, the estate forester provided an outstanding insight into how the woodlands are an integral part of the estate and of the local economy, intertwining the social and the economic history of this fascinating place through a mix of hard headed business and philanthropy and a firm belief in the benefits of continuous cover.

During July 12 members of the CCFG and 2 students who were funded by Woodland Heritage visited the Timisoara district of Romania where they were guests of Romanian colleagues from ProSilva Europe. By all accounts the visit was very stimulating and equally enjoyable, and we are looking forward to reading more about it in the next issue of the CCFG newsletter which is due out in the late autumn.
Despite torrential rain the Scottish visit to Glenmore was very well attended, and provoked much interest in the issues of converting older stands of Scots Pine to CCF, and managing a Forest Park to satisfy the conflicting demands of commercial use, biodiversity and recreation.
