Six students on forestry and land-related courses attended Confor’s policy conference thanks to generous support from the Forest Industries Education & Provident Fund.

The students had their travel expenses and entrance to the conference - Timber! Why The UK Need The Wood and the Trees - paid for by the Fund.

They were all asked to summarise how they benefited from attending the event, which featured contributions from a wide range of high-profile speakers, including UK Government Forestry Minister Trudy Harrison and Climate Change Committee Chair Lord Deben.

Their comments are summarised below. Read the full student accounts of the event.
