Farmers will be among the crowds of visitors set to attend the UK’s largest forestry, woodland, arboriculture, fencing and biomass show this month.
Woodland and tree management advice for farmers will be just one feature of the 2022 APF Exhibition, which is being held on 22-24 September at the Ragley Estate, Warwickshire.
The show is of significant interest to the farming industry with a dedicated fencing village and a lot of machinery and equipment designed for small woodlands and adding value to small parcels of timber and individual trees.
More than 320 exhibitors and 22,000 visitors, 90% of whom are trade professionals, are expected to attend. Producing and utilising timber as woodfuel – whether as firewood or woodchips – will feature strongly. So too will biomass boilers.
The show features some £80m of equipment, much of it designed for use on farms, small woodlands, estates and individual trees – enabling farmers to maximise the value of trees and timber on their land.
Advice will be available on new rules for producing and selling firewood, the new Forestry Commission funded project for mapping the UK’s coppice resource, winching safety demos, and discussions on training for forest workers.
