Summary Description:

The Working Woods Scotland (WWS) Course is a 3-day training event that brings together professionals from across the homegrown Scottish Hardwood (and premium softwood) industry; from foresters and woodland managers, to sawmillers and woodworkers. WWS course content covers all aspects of the industry, teaching attendees about silvicultural practices for hardwood production, grading and valuing standing timber and round logs, hardwood processing (such as milling and kilning practices), and finding a market for your hardwood timber products. The course is also designed to help build links with other professionals in the industry, increasing mutual understanding and encouraging trade and collaboration across the industry to its (and their individual businesses) benefits. Funding will be split over 2 years to help fund the WWS courses that are scheduled to run in Autumn 2022, and 2023.
