After Forestry Minister Lord Goldsmith called for a “colossal endeavour” to more than double existing planting rates by 2025, Confor has produced an analysis of evidence to show that forests planted in the UK for wood production have significant value as biodiversity habitats.

 

Policy researcher Eleanor Harris draws on a huge body of research and real-life case studies to argue that suitably-sited forests for wood production can deliver great benefits for wildlife – and that appropriate harvesting from native woodland can often enhance its biodiversity value.

 

She sought and received helpful feedback from a wide range of environmental and conservation organisations on the Biodiversity, Forestry and Wood report.
