Who we are

Updated 22nd November 2018


On 1 April 2019 Forest Enterprise England will change its name to Forestry England. Alongside this we are refreshing our visual brand, so the way we look will be slightly different too.

Our role will not change – we will continue our mission to connect everyone with the nation’s forests by creating and caring for our forests for people to enjoy, wildlife to flourish and businesses to grow. Our legal status will be the same – we will continue to operate under the Forestry Act(s) and subsequent legislation. We will still be part of Forestry Commission England and the Civil Service.

We are strengthening our Board, with the addition of three new Commissioners who will be chosen for their ability to lead the management of our forests on a professional, business-like basis, reflecting our customers’ needs. Selected though the open public appointments process, the range of Commissioners will reflect our diverse range of customers, and how our forests are used.

Over the next few years you will see our new Forestry England brand being rolled out across our forests. We will work with local teams and businesses to do this gradually, keeping costs and waste to a minimum by replacing things as and when they are due to be replaced.

The way we work with all our partners and communities will not change, and we continue to value the contribution of everyone we work with - helping us to connect everyone with the nation’s forests.
