Forestry England publish 5-year plan

Launched to protect England’s forests, the ‘Growing the future: 2021-26’ plan highlights Forestry England’s response to the biodiversity crisis, changing climate and link between people and nature.

As England’s largest land manager, responsible for 1,500 woods and forests, the new five-year plan addresses how, where and when the agency will deliver their ambitions. To tackle the climate emergency, the plan commits to planting over 2,000 hectares of high-quality new woodlands, while creating greater structural and tree species, and securing sustainable timber supply for future generations. The agency will also launch a national membership scheme to encourage more people to into forests across the country, with a number of new recreational activities and experiences in development for visitors.
