    Growing a Sustainable Future

    A diverse upland landscape will be more resilient to climate change, will be better at sequestering carbon, will buffer the impact of storms and high rainfall, and it will support a wider range of biodiversity and jobs.

Sustainable Forests and Plantations

This web site aims to increase awareness and deliver news & views on how we manage the natural resources of our woodlands, forests and plantations. Trees and woodland provide so much with relatively little input and demonstrate an optimism and investment in the future. A future whose climate we know will become more unpredictable. It is important that we start to mitigate against this unpredictability and make our landscapes more resilient and robust.

A very simple way to do this is to plant more trees, the right trees and in the right places!
