Our Forest Management Plans

How we manage our nation's forests sustainably for people, nature and the economy

A plan for each local forest area sets out how we aim to manage the woodlands in our care over the next 30 or more years.

A Forest Plan:

  • provides a description of the woods as they are now
  • outlines the main points considered when deciding what is best for the woods
  • describes how the forest will develop over time
  • gives specific information about approved tree felling, replanting and regeneration over the next ten years
