1548: Forest report
This paper is summarised from the executive summary of the Independent Panel on Forestry Final report
Year of Publication2012
Woodland cover should expand from 10% to 15% of England by 2060. The area managed to the UK Forestry Standard should increase from around 50% to 80% of the total, over about the next ten years. There needs to be investment in woodfuel, saw mills, furniture and creative industries. Forest Services should drive a change in woodland culture, provide information and expert advice to England’s woodland owners, regulate them, deliver Government policy and inspire people and organisations to use wood as a product. The public forest estate in England should be managed by a new public organisation evolved from Forest Enterprise England.
