We’re sure that many of our readers have been bombarded with opt-in messages from online accounts and newsletters, all in readiness for the impending General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR). As you originally opted in to receive the Sylva enews we are not asking you to do so again, but we have always included an ‘opt-out’ link at the bottom of this enews. However, it has come to our attention that recently this has stopped working, and some people who asked to be unsubscribed have continued to receive communications from us. We sincerely apologise for this.
Next week we are launching a new look to our enews, and this will include a working opt-out link! Please bear with us while we make this transition.

Thank you

Your last chance to take part in the 2017 national woodlands survey

posted on September 25, 2017

British Woodlands Survey 2017

We’ve been delighted with the response over the summer months to the 2017 British Woodlands Survey. So far more than 1,600 woodland owners, agents, foresters, forest school practitioners, and forestry and wood businesses have taken part in the national web-based survey.

Devolution, pests & pathogens, Brexit, emerging markets, climate change, societal attitudes . . . these are just some of the momentous factors influencing our trees and woodlands, those who care for them, and those who rely on their products and services. Have your say about what these and other issues mean to you by taking part in Britain’s only dedicated national survey about our woodlands and forestry. This year we have unprecedented interest from policy makers, national organisations, research commissioners and others. Make sure your voice counts!

It’s not too late to take part. The survey closes to responses on Sunday 1st October at 23:59.

Please read more and take the survey: www.sylva.org.uk/bws2017

  • This week we provide an insight into work, which has been taking place behind the scenes for many months, that will lead to a campaign to raise the importance of resilience of UK woodlands. A number of activities will take place over the summer, including the launch of a national survey under our British Woodlands Survey series, aimed at woodland owners, agents, tree nurseries and forestry/tree professionals.
  • We have been delighted by the response to our auction of special edition prints from The New Sylva. We hope the selection of 80 prints offers something for everyone with a passion for a trees and a love of fine art. Remember that all proceeds go to our charitable work.

We are excited to announce the launch of our long-awaited auction of special edition prints from The New Sylva. The auction is hosted on eBay and will take place over the summer months, the prints being released in weekly batches. This presents a unique opportunity to own some beautiful tree art and to invest in the work of an internationally-renowned artist who rarely sells her work as prints.

Welcome to Sylva’s latest enews.

We start with an apology for last week’s complete outage of online services. Due to a problem with our server hosting the entire suite of websites and databases went offline for several days. This also affected our enews, which was not sent out last Friday.

On a more positive note we are excited to announce the forthcoming auction of a unique selection of special edition prints from The New Sylva, and offer an early-bird sign-up for fans of the stunning tree and forest drawings by Sarah Simblet. After many months of building works, the end is in sight for the completion of works at the new Sylva Wood Centre. If you know any budding wood-based businesses, we are looking to attract and support more young businesses.

We hope you enjoy reading more about these stories and other news from Sylva, and as always, welcome comments and feedback.
