Due to Covid-19, we have reduced personnel at the offices of the Sylva Foundation and our premises at the Sylva Wood Centre. Emails and phone messages are being checked but please allow a little longer than usual to receive a response.
Please do not arrange a formal visit without first checking with us. Members of the public are free to enjoy our network of permitted paths through the Future Forest as usual.

Sylva Foundation germinates

posted on March 29, 2009

We are really pleased that the Sylva Foundation is now registered as a charity in England and Wales.  This means that we can move from a lot of developmental thinking and administrative work, to making a real start with our projects.

During 2008 we commissioned wood engraver Howard Phipps to produce the design for our new logo. Working with the end grain of a tiny block of box (Buxus sempevirens) wood, Howard incorporated oak and larch branches in the design to depict our wide interest in all forest types, and a log face to emphasise our support for wood production.

We have created a new website for Sylva and for the organisation’s three projects.  You can read more about them by exploring the other links of this blog.

We would be pleased to hear from you with your views – either about the Sylva Foundation or about trees and forestry in general.
