ODPG Webinar: Trees for Farms

This year we are continuing our regular webinars on all sorts of farming topics as part of a programme provided to our members, allowing us to continue educating through Covid-19 restrictions.

HOSTWayne Douglas
DATEWednesday 9th February 2022
Online via Zoom

For our first Members-Only webinar of 2022, we are delighted to have Wayne Douglas joining us next Wednesday for a look at the many benefits trees have on farms. We know many of you have been looking forward to this one, which has been rescheduled from last year, so set a reminder and join us online!


The humble tree takes numerous shapes and forms around the globe and grows in a variety of climates and ground conditions. 

As farmers we need a variety of trees that can not only provide shelter, shade and possibly nutrients for livestock. We also need trees to improve microbiome support, mitigate wet pasture and enhance the overall wellbeing of the farm environment.
Growing a multipurpose variety would be a huge benefit to pastoral farmers, but it’s not the only reason for trees in the landscape, and this webinar is the chance to air points of view and share thoughts on the wonderful and ancient being we call the ‘tree’.
We have invited Wayne Douglas to talk about trees with us on Wednesday 9 February from 7.30pm. He has made trees for farms his passion and will share and discuss his ideas and things he has seen and researched during this webinar.
We invite members to forward their questions either before or during the webinar and we will endeavour to get them answered.
