We are England?s largest land manager and custodian of the nation?s public forests. We have around 1,000 committed staff and volunteers looking after more land and more trees than any other organisation. We work in partnership with others across government and the charitable and private sectors.
The nation?s forests are a great source of natural wealth and help shape the look and feel of the ?natural? countryside. They influence how the countryside works, for timber as well as people and wildlife.
Forests flourish with management and planning. In that sense we are landscapers on a vast, nationwide scale for this generation and beyond. Our work today influences what the nation?s forests look like for generations to come.
We are looking a hundred years or more ahead to imagine how England?s countryside needs to adapt to a changing climate and cultural changes.
