One thousandth woodland mapped on myForest

posted on January 29, 2013

The one thousandth woodland has been mapped on myForest service website. The total area mapped now exceeds 17,000ha across Britain, with a few Irish woodland owners having signed up over recent months. These statistics tell us that the average woodland size is 1.47ha. In reality of course, from more in depth analysis we know that the woodlands mapped on myForest range from some very large woodlands (over 1000ha) to the smallest copse or spinney (0.25ha).

Readers interested in progress with the uptake and coverage of myForest can view the latest statistics on the service’s website. Click on the image below to visit the page.

Other news relating to myForest is that some major work has been underway in developing the online mapping tools. These are being trialled currently with a few beta testers, and we hope to launch the update fully soon. If you are a woodland manager or agent, and consider yourself to be IT savvy, why not contact us and volunteer as a beta tester for the future?
