The British Woodlands Survey has extended its deadline for receiving our views on woodlands and environmental change until this Sunday 19th July. We have all weekend to mull over the issues and contribute to this 5-yearly measure of woody minds. The British Woodlands Survey focuses on varying issues in woodland society, opinion, and management each time it is run, this being the second in a cycle considering our changing habitat. The 2020 survey aims to gauge 3 key aspects of woodland resilience – our awareness, actions, and our aspirations. The survey is available online here: https://www.sylva.org.uk/bws2020
There’s a longer explanation of the design and impact of previous British Woodlands Surveys since 2012, from Gabriel Hemery, the CEO of Sylva, the research organisation that manages this and many other contributions to extreme woodland cleverness, here: https://forestrycommission.blog.gov.uk/2020/05/27/have-your-say-about-environmental-change/
BWS2020 is funded by the Forestry Commission. The survey is supported by the Forestry and Climate Change Working Group whose members include representatives from Confor, Country Land & Business Association, Defra, Forestry Commission, Forest Research, Future Trees Trust, Institute of Chartered Foresters, Natural England, Pryor and Rickett, Royal Forestry Society, Sylva Foundation, Tilhill, Tree Council, Woodland Heritage and Woodland Trust.
