British Woodlands Survey 2015

August 12, 2015

The 2015 national survey is aiming to help understand awareness and actions in adapting to environmental change among woodland owners and managers (including agents), tree nursery businesses, and forestry professionals. It is also hoping to capture aspirations for future actions that would lead to greater resilience of our woodlands.

The survey is live from July 31st to September 15th 2015.

Environmental change may mean any change or disturbance of the environment caused by human influences and/or natural ecological processes. As such the survey is exploring climate change, pests, pathogens, flooding, wind, fire and pollution, and will be seeking to explore how resilient our forests are to change. The information gathered will be used by organisations, policy makers and researchers to help improve the resilience of the nation’s forests. The results will inform the government’s National Adaptation Programme.

The British Woodlands Survey 2015 on Resilience is supported by a very wide number of partners, with funding provided by the Forestry Commission and the Woodland Trust. It is hosted and co-ordinated by the Sylva Foundation. You may be interested also to learn that the survey is part of a wider campaign about resilience, which has seen the creation of a ‘Climate Change Accord’ signed by many leading tree and forestry organisations.
