Forests play an important role in the global carbon cycle. They account for almost three-quarters of the annual exchange of carbon between the land and the atmosphere. The UKFS Guidelines on Climate Change are focused on the actions that forest managers can take to protect forests and woodlands in the UK, and to ensure that we can adapt to the new threats and opportunities that climate change will bring while still maintaining and expanding a sustainable forest and woodland resource.
