WOODLAND Heritage’s popular ‘Woodland to Workshop’ (W2W) course had a welcome boost in May thanks to Wood-Mizer UK’s latest bursary award, with Ben Law apprentice, Rachel Johnson, the most recent beneficiary. The W2W course links ‘tree growers with wood users’, broadening horizons and raising awareness by educating participants from the forest through to the workshop and beyond.

Wood-Mizer UK has sponsored one student at each W2W course for the last three years, with its £500 grant making the difference between a young forester being able to attend or not.

“The W2W course was a real help to me earlier in my forestry career, as it really brought to life the realities of the timber supply chain,” said Woodland Heritage Administrator and past W2W attendee, Kelly Morss.

“Each course aims to bring together people of different ages and backgrounds, but to be able to rely upon the support from Wood-Mizer UK to ensure a young forester can attend each time is a real bonus.”
