507: Strategy for trees, woods and forests
This briefing comes from Defra’s Strategy for England Trees, Woods and Forests
Year of Publication2007
England's trees, woods and forests can enhance water, soil, air, biodiversity and landscape, contribute to culture, amenity and social cohesion and produce economic benefits through innovations including substituting wood for fossil fuels. They can help to combat climate change and should be used more for educational, social and community purposes. Much woodland needs more management and local people should be involved more in planning, managing and using trees and local woodlands.
