We are making final preparations for the public launch of the myForest Service in April.
The development of myForest by SYLVA has spanned about 18 months. During this time we have discussed and listened to all views right across the forestry sector. We have also developed powerful yet simple IT tools for our future users. We have used this time to develop a service that we hope will be really useful to all elements of the woodchain; from woodland owner and agent, through to wood using businesses.
The current usage of the myForest service is approximately 100 businesses and some 50 woodland owners. These users have come to the service by word of mouth, and via our research and development activities. We believe that we are now ready to launch the service publicly and now hope to gain rapid support and uptake. The more myForest is adopted the better it will support the forestry sector.
