APF 2014 – The Best Ever
APF 2014 is the UK’s largest and most exciting forestry, woodland, arboricultural, trees and timber exhibition. If you are interested in trees and timber then this is the place to be. Over £30 million and 2 miles of working machinery and equipment will be on show. 270 exhibitors and 20 000 visitors are expected to attend over the three days.

There is a host of exciting displays and events on show: The Husqvarna World 25m poleclimbing championships will see the top 50 climbers in the world battle it out for the World title. The A W Jenkinson and UPM Tilhill European Chainsaw Carving Championships will have the best 25 carvers in Europe competing to take the title. Will Lee will be aiming to retain his 2012 crown against a high class field including the 2010 champion Daniel Cordell. The UK forwarder driving championships, tree felling safety and training demonstrations by FISA, the World log to leg pole lathe championships, an extensive traditional woodland crafts area including have-a-go opportunities, horse logging demos, vintage forest machinery and steam driven sawbenches and a full, topical series of seminars by the Forestry Commission make this an unmissable event.

On Saturday 20th we will be staging a very special and unique Track vs Tree race. GB sprint star and European gold medallist Harry Aikines-Aryeetey will race 100m along a specially laid Olympic standard running track against World 25m poleclimbing champion and World record holder Grant Gallier who will try to beat Harry by climbing to the top of the pole first. With Harrys best 100m time of 10.08s and Grants World record time of 9.07s it promises to be a very close race. Commentator for the race will be ex 400m World champion, Olympic athlete and TV presenter Iwan Thomas, who will attempt the pole climb afterwards.

For the first time we are offering on site camping to enable you to make the most of your stay. Tickets will be available on the gate at £20, children under 16 are free.
