This blog charts my journey through the Forestry Commission’s Graduate Scheme. I was immersed in the study of Classics at university for many years (at the Universities of Edinburgh and Manchester, as well as the British School at Rome), but have now embarked on a very different adventure as I enter the wonderful world of Silviculture. Forestry is quite new to me, and the Graduate Scheme of the English Forestry Commission will expose me to every aspect of the work being undertaken – from on the ground activity, recreation, wildlife preservation and control, land management, future forest planning, stakeholder relations and many other crucial functions.
