New award launched to recognise best foresters

THE work of foresters is to be recognised with the launch of a new award, Professional Forester of the Year.

The accolade has been launched by the Institute of Chartered Foresters which says – here – that the award will “recognise contributions to the betterment of forestry made within the last three years”.

The inaugural winner of the award will be announced in Edinburgh on February 28 next year.

Nominations opened yesterday.
