Woodlands and Foresty Sector Group

Update - Woodlands and Forestry Group Jan 09 - This Woodlands and Forestry group will from January 09 effectively become a 'sub-group' of the wider RFF Delivery Group on an as and when basis. It will continue to operate as an occasional 'e-group' and will get together, when necessary, to promote/organise task specific woodland biodiversity. In addition, it may well be that such specific woodland biodiversity actions will need to be taken up as a result of the RFF refresh. But the group will no longer operate on a regular meeting basis. If you would like to be added to the mailing list please contact the Regional Biodiversity Co-ordinator.

The vision of the Woodlands and Foresty sector group is to have "woodlands and forests protected, managed and created to enhance both woodland and non-woodland habitats and species populations, which at the same time provide sustainable good, environmental services and recreational benefits enhancing people's quality of life".

Objectives for this group include:

  • The protection of native and ancient woodland from unnecessary damage;
  • The enhancement, extension and restoration of the existing native and ancient woodland resource;
  • To realise the broader social and economic benefits of woodland biodiversity; and
  • To manage non-native woodland to improve biodiversity in the wider landscape.
