RSFS COVID-19 update

Check here for updates  All upcoming RSFS events cancelled

In line with government guidance on Covid-19, we have decided to cancel all Royal Scottish Forestry Society events from now to the end of July.  Like many other bodies, we are taking this action to stop unnecessary travel and to protect both vulnerable people and the wider population.

This applies to regional field days, the annual study tour and training workshops.  We are grateful to the many woodland owners and managers who offered to host events for RSFS.  We hope these postponed events can be reinstated once circumstances allow.  We will contiune to follow government advice and provide updates here.
