Demonstrating Investment in Forestry -     

Free Events


Forestry Commission England and Lantern have teamed up with previous grant recipients across England to showcase, through a series of free outdoor demonstration events, how European Union funding has enabled them to grow and improve their businesses. 


These events will highlight the opportunities afforded by EU funding, demonstrating a range of equipment and infrastructure that has had a transformative effect on the businesses in question. The events give you the chance to see first hand how funding can be used and the effect it has had and to question those businesses in more detail about whats involved in applying. 


These informal and informative events will feature presentations from the hosts and from area representatives of the Forestry Commission, as well as demonstrations of the equipment involved and in many cases refreshments and/or lunch will be provided.  They will be running across England starting in September 2014 and running until February 2015. 


If you are hoping to see a particular piece of equipment in action, let us know by emailing us at and we will direct you to the most relevant event.
