The Wessex Silvicultural Group is a specialist woodland study group made up of some of England's most notable forestry and environmental professionals. The groupís aim is to share knowledge and experience in the management of woodland by visiting relevant private and public woodlands across the south of England. Since it was established in 1963 the group has studied one relevant silvicultural topic each year, (sometimes over 2 or 3 years), in a series of field meetings.
Wessex Silvicultural Group is an entirely independent organization. Membership is by annual subscription, currently held at £15 for individuals. Corporate membership is available for larger organizations at an annual cost of £120.
