Engaging with stakeholders and your community can be a very important part of woodland management, both in the planning and operational stages. As part of the Good Woods project we have updated the Community Engagement Toolkit (first published in 2011).
The new guide, Stakeholder and Community Engagement – A guide for woodland owners and managers in England, reflects changes to the UK Forestry Standard and other developments in forestry and technology.
The guide is aimed at woodland owners, managers and workers and is designed to help communicate the reasons and benefits of woodland management to the general public. It provides suggestions and guidance to help relate woodland plans to the wider community.
