This is an exciting time for us as we embark on the next phase of our ambitious strategy for the Forest. In 2018 we exceeded our target to get 70% of woodlands into active management, up from 41% in 2013, whilst also supporting over 2,000 volunteer sessions by Community Woodland Groups. This success is creating demand on the local woodland economy, from primary felling and processing through to sales and marketing. The National Forest Company has now been successful in securing external funding to develop this important area of work across the National Forest.


With the support of the Esmée Fairbairn Foundation this project will build on our current success with woodland management to develop a woodland culture that will spread the benefits of this nascent economy across our landowners, businesses and communities.


Two new part-time posts of Woodland Business Adviser and Woodland Communities Adviser are being appointed to support this area of work.


For the role of Woodland Business Adviser the National Forest Company are looking for a talented candidate who can help to set up, grow and sustain local woodland businesses by providing support and advice to develop the woodland economy, increase productivity, enabling greater investment, and improve marketing of wood products.


For an informal chat about the role, please contact Charles Robinson, Head of Forestry on 01283 551211
