Welcome to TIMBER!

Timber! is a new website providing free, cross curricular, and creative resources, activities, and practical ideas on British trees and forests and their value. Many of the resources have been developed and used with young people both indoors and outdoors by teachers and Forest School Leaders in Oxfordshire in partnership with the Sylva Foundation team.

If you are an early years practitioner, primary or secondary teacher, Forest School Leader or educator at an environmental education centre or museum, you are sure to find inspirational and unique ideas here!

You can also share your own ideas and resources on British trees and forests and their value. Be part of this exciting national resource that aims to increase young people's connection to our trees and inspires learning about woodlands and forestry and their importance to all our lives.

"TIMBER! resources are a unique blend of woodland information, wonderful creative ideas & realistic learning activities."

Naomi Hodge, Combe C of E Primary School

"I have found the project truly inspirational...TIMBER! is providing a brilliant resource and expertise exchange thank you!"
