WOODLANDS are attracting ever-increasing interest across Britain, but little is known with any real certainty about the vast majority of woods held in private hands.
Now Lincolnshire woodland owners are being asked to take part in a new national survey, which has been launched by leading forestry and land-related organisations.
The aim of the survey is to find out more about the extent of sustainable management practices, with questions relating to ownership, woodland management and markets.
The survey, which also includes public woodlands not owned by the Forestry Commission, such as council-owned woodlands, is available online at: http://bit.ly/BritishWoodlands2012 and background information at www.sylva.org.uk/BW2012.
The survey will stay open until late August.
