National survey of British Woodlands

Share this article

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: and background information at

The survey will stay open until late August.
