We all value our trees, woods and forests.
A new report explores in more detail just how important those forests, woods and trees are, but also the urgent need to turn words into action if we are to do them justice.
In this International Year of Forests, the Woodland Trust felt it was important to bring together voices from across the sector.
Twenty different collaborators have worked together to produce 'The State of the UK’s Forests, Woods and Trees'. The consortium of groups, led by the Woodland Trust, represents a range of interests from timber production, to woodland conservation, to community participation.
'State of the UK's forests, woods and trees'
As individual organisations we may all have slightly different emphases, but this report shows that we’re all committed to a robust and resilient resource of trees, woods and forests fit for the future.
Forests, woods and trees are an incredibly rich resource for the UK, with potential to deliver so much more. This report signals to government the need to truly embed them across all areas of policy-making.
