Today a major milestone was met by our myForest Service when the area of woodlands mapped exceeded 3000 hectares across the country. This represents only a small proportion of woodlands in Britain (about 0.1% of the 3 million hectares of forest) but this is a promising sign that the service is viewed as a valuable tool by woodland owners.
Since its launch in April this year, we have witnessed growing awareness and interest in the myForest Service. Our vision to reconnect the woodchain across Britain is certainly ambitious and it will not be possible to achieve this without the support of the sector at large. It is very exciting to witness the daily increase in support and adoption by woodland owners and forestry businesses.
We are indebted to all our partners and supporters for their support, and not least all the woodland owners (about 200 to date).
