charitable object: advancing education for the public benefit in the theory and practice of sustainable forest management

We believe that all people should be able to appreciate forests and understand their sustainable use. Through our Education programme we set out to show people that managing forests appropriately is the best way to care for them. Ultimately we aim to revive a wood culture.

Most of our education work is supported currently with a grant from the Patsy Wood Trust. Their support has enabled us to employ Jen Hurst as our Education Manager, and to deliver two new main projects.

myForest for Education

An easy-to-use and free online application that enables any educator, or young person, to generate straightforward woodland management plans, maps and ecological impact assessments for woodland sites and school grounds.


Resources on trees, forests and wood can be found on the new TIMBER! website. Teachers, educators and Forest School Leaders can search for resources and download them for free. TIMBER! is also a platform to upload and share resources and we welcome your ideas and activities for both indoor and outdoor learning.
