Welcome to the Farm Woodland Forum Web Site


The Farm Woodland Forum aims to facilitate the generation and exchange of information that supports best practice in and improves opportunities for farming with trees. We are an informal group of about 220 people with a common interest in farming with trees in all its aspects. Until 2003, we were known as the UK Agroforestry Forum.


The Forum holds annual meetings at which there are presentations to describe the latest research, development and practice related to agroforestry and farming with trees. There are also field visits to sites of interest. To find out more about the meetings or the benefits of membership click on the relevant link on the left side.


Charity status was conferred on the Forum on 11 January 2005.
