Forestry workforce research – skills survey

Lantra, with the support of the Forestry Commission, Natural Resources Wales, the Welsh Government and Confor, have commissioned a study to review the level of skills and training at this pivotal moment within forestry. As the government commits to higher levels of new planting and markets for timber increase, it is vital that we understand what skills are present, what is missing and what the future looks like.




This survey may be completed by anyone that works with trees, forests and woodlands, either full-time, part-time or occasionally – large or small businesses, farmers, self-employed contractors, sawmillers, researchers or anyone else.

Please complete this short survey – it should take no more than five minutes and your views will help ensure the right skills are developed in our workforce in the future.
