Public Forest Estate Update

Trust Directors at their recent AGM resolved that the Trust should pursue being gifted appropriate areas of woodland, where these were deemed to be surplus to the public forest estate. The Trust would also continue to seek to influence the considerations of the expert panel on the future forestry policy, including through the national programme of Community Forests.

The Forest of Avon Trust is also actively working with woodland owners across Bristol & the West to provide advice on grants to help them to continue to provide/ enhance public access and improve the biodiversity of their woodlands. To date, this has been funded by the Forestry Commission and is practically addressing both the needs of owners and the desire for people to continue to visit and enjoy local woodlands.
