Woodland Heritage is recognised as a unique initiative, which truly unites all tree people – a vehicle for wood users (and consumers) to “put something back” and contribute to the proper management of British Trees.
Woodland Heritage was founded by a group of traditional cabinet makers who wanted to improve the way in which trees were grown, maintained and harvested in the UK. This small group of environmentally minded producers was rapidly joined by many hundreds of individuals with concerns for our woodland environment, furniture retailers, timber merchants, tree growers and colleges. Woodlands are capable of growing high quality timber whilst providing an environment that supports wildlife, but only if properly and continuously managed. Woodland Heritage will seek to help through funding projects, grants and travel bursaries, research, education, spreading the word via woodland to workshop and field weekends, and co-operating with like-minded initiatives.
