TIME is running out to nominate your forestry heroes for this year's Confor Awards - which return after a two-year Covid-enforced hiatus. 

There are just five days left to put your industry inspiration in the running to land one of the prestigious gongs, which recognise the achievements of people in the foresty and timber trade. 

With the awards due to be held at the Sheraton Grand Hotel and Spa, in Edinburgh, in March, categories include the Changing Attitudes Award, Innovation and Research Award, and the Future Leader Awards.
