Jun 16 Forest Charter – unique opportunity for small woodland owners By Judith

Charter_CMYK

More than 50 organisations, co-ordinated by the Woodland Trust, are leading UK society in a call for a charter that will ensure that people and trees can stand stronger together in the future. This charter, strengthened by support from all corners of society, will provide guidelines and principles for policy, decision-makers, businesses, communities and individuals. SWOG is pleased to be supporting a consultation, hosted by the Sylva Foundation, that will enable woodland owners and custodians across the UK to help define the 2017 Charter for Trees, Woods and People.

This consultation is the only activity specifically aimed at ensuring the views of woodland owners or custodians are reflected in the charter. More than two-thirds of woodlands are held in private hands, so it is vital that the voices of woodland owners/custodians, like yours, are captured. We would like to record your hopes and fears for the future to ensure that the charter speaks for you, and supports you in your vital role as custodian of the nation’s woodland heritage.

Gabriel Hemery, the Chief Executive of Sylva explains more about it in this blog, Woodland ownership in the 21st century
