Sylva Foundation is pleased to be supporting an activity enabling woodland owners and custodians across the UK to actively engage in the 2017 Charter for Trees, Woods and People.
More than 50 organisations, co-ordinated by the Woodland Trust, are leading a call for a Charter to establish principles for society that will ensure that people and trees can stand stronger together in the future.
This consultation is the only activity specifically aimed at ensuring the views of woodland owners are reflected in the Charter. More than two-thirds of woodlands are held in private hands, so it is vital that the voices of woodland owners, like yours, are heard. We want to capture your hopes and fears for the future to ensure that the charter speaks for you, and supports you in your vital role as custodian of the nation's woodland heritage.
