In advance of the full report of the British Woodlands 2012 survey being released by the Royal Institute of Chartered Surveyors (RICS), a summary article has been published in the RICS Land Journal.
We apologise for a typographic error in the second paragraph that appears to state that 92% of woodlands are not in Forestry Commission ownership. This should read 72%.
We are grateful to RICS for granting permission to reproduce here the article that appeared first in the Land Journal in September-October 2013.
The full report on the British Woodlands 2012 survey will be available shortly, and will be advertised on our blog. For more information about the survey visit the British Woodlands survey page on our Forestry Horizons website.
