2 June 2020

Tilhill, the UK’s leading forest management, timber harvesting and landscaping company are launching series of public  webinar for farmers, landowners and companies looking to plant trees on their land in Scotland, England and Wales.

The first webinar takes place on Tuesday June 2nd at 11am and looks at Scotland with a focus on Farm Woodlands: Making Trees Work for You - follow this link for registration.

Registrants will receive valuable information from a range of forestry professionals.  

Calum Murray will start the session. He has spent twenty years of his career as a Forest Manager and now has a leading role in developing the services Tilhill can offer in north east Scotland for both existing and new clients in need of expert management, or landowners with exciting new woodland creation projects of any scale. Calum will offer his professional advice to anyone who is looking to release the full potential of their woodland, farm or landholding.  

Calum will be followed by Eddie Addis, Tilhill’s Regional Manager for South Scotland. Eddie grew up in a rural environment in Argyll where his family background was in forestry and farming. This led to a career in the forest industry. He has over twenty years-experience working in forest management and harvesting. Whilst the majority of his professional experience has been based in Scotland it covers most aspects of forestry practice from the rocky uplands of Argyll to the rolling hills of Southern Scotland. 

The event will be chaired by Tim Liddon, Tilhill’s Forestry Director. Tim grew up with forestry in South West England where his father owned a forestry business. He studied Forestry at Aberdeen University and joined Tilhill as a forest manager in 1980. He has enjoyed the challenges and opportunities the industry has had to offer over the last 40 years.

In 2015 Tim was appointed to the Tilhill Board as Forestry Director. He has been a Fellow of the Institute of Chartered Foresters since 2004. He continues to seek solutions and to raise standards in forestry.
