More about our work

As well as providing interest and enjoyment for visitors, wildlife contributes to healthy natural ecosystems. Our woodlands are some of the best places to spot wildlife from large mammals such as deer, to some of the smaller inhabitants such as bats, dormice, butterflies and red squirrels.

We believe forests enhance people’s quality of life by providing places to enjoy watching wildlife, walking, riding bikes or horses and playing among the trees. By opening up access to the nation's forests through our Active Forests programme, we contribute to the wellbeing of the nation.

The public forest estate is a huge renewable resource. The revenue we generate from harvesting and selling timber, through commercial partnerships and by maximising the assets found on the estate help ensure our forests remain vibrant, open and attractive places.

We are the largest supplier of sustainably produced timber in England, selling around 1.4 million tonnes per year.
