Latest news from the My Forestry England portal

April 2024 update

We are excited to let you know that we will be launching Quick Response (QR) codes for you soon, which will act as your digital identification badge - including your name. Once you've received your code, please download it before you head to the forest.

This QR system has been put into place to help you and staff members gain access quickly to all your key information, even without mobile phone signal. Your personal code will be emailed to you and will be personalised with your details. All you'll need to do is present the QR code to a staff member in your forest and they will know what to do. 

My Forestry England website

In summer 2024 we will be launching My Forestry England. This is built to support you in doing the things you love, whilst also helping you stay safe on site and providing an up-to-date record of your contributions. Please check back regularly in preparation for the launch.
