Collaborative woodland management tools on myForest

Support for collaborative woodland management

From today, users of our myForest service can query resource information across multiple properties which can help support collaborative woodland management. Suited equally to woodland co-operatives or managers with multiple clients, the new functionality aims to improve efficiency by enhancing collaboration, with the main outcomes that more woodlands are managed well, and more home-grown timber reaches the market.

myForest supports social enterprises

The myForest team have recently joined forces with the team from the Making Local Woods Work, a partnership which helps support and grow woodland social enterprises. We have added a new category to the myForest Directory that allows businesses to highlight their social missions and for myForest users to search for social enterprise businesses.

Charter for Trees, Woods and People

Woodland owners – have your say in the 2017 Charter

Sylva Foundation is supporting the 2017 Charter for Trees, Woods and People, by capturing the stories of woodland owners. We want to ensure that the Charter speaks for them, and recognises their vital role as custodians of the nation’s woodland heritage.

If you are a woodland owner or custodian please consider taking part. The simple online consultation will take only a few minutes to complete. Your woodland will be registered by county in the 2017 Charter.
