In 2013 Sylva teamed up with leading home improvement and garden centre retailer B&Q and sustainability charity BioRegional to support woodland stewardship and the forestry sector in the UK.
The WSR is a self-assessment scheme based on the UKFS and aims to help woodland owners advance their woodland stewardship activities. It supports the woodland management planning process by summarising what good stewardship involves in practise.
This is a guide designed to help woodland owners, managers and workers communicate the reasons and benefits of woodland management to the general public. The guide provides suggestions and guidance to help relate woodland plans to the wider community.
This guide has been developed to introduce timber production in British woodlands to owners and managers. The guide provides information on estimating sustainable harvest volumes, timber uses for each species and a species key to help identify forest species.
We would like to thank B&Q, Bioregional and all our partners and supporters in this fantastic project.
