Our Annual Review for 2012-13 has been published online. It can be downloaded in various versions, including an interactive page-turning version (requires flash), here.
Chair of Trustees, Dr Nick Brown, introduced the report writing “Our fourth operating year as a charity has been one of noticeable energy and delivery. Our plans and activities are beginning to make a significant contribution to the conservation of the environment.”
Highlights of 2012-13 included the British Woodlands Survey 2012, which produced responses from 2600 woodland owners. The New Sylva book, sponsored by Sylva, was written in readiness for publication by Bloomsbury in April 2014. The OneOak project came to a finale with a series of public exhibitions across the country, finishing at Royal Botanic Garden Edinburgh where it attracted almost 50,000 visitors during its six week stay. Our myForest service supported 804 woodland owners in mapping over 18,000 hectares of woodland. Retailer B&Q funded the Good Woods project which will support 200 woodland owners across the southeast and east of England with the provision of tools and training in woodland management.
We hope you enjoy reading more about our work during the past year and plans for the future.
