Re-foresting: The potential for timber villages 

As England is launching a consultation on its future tree planting strategy, we’re looking at results of a recent study by Simon Feather. ‘Re-Foresting: A Strategy for Production within the Northern Forest’ investigates collaborative approaches between architects and the forestry sector to define future tree species suitable for tomorrow’s construction in a low-carbon society.

Modern forestry and biodiversity  

Can wood production also deliver benefits for biodiversity?  Confor have prepared a report,  Biodiversity, Forestry and Wood. An analysis of the biodiversity benefits of modern forestry and woodland to look at the evidence. And yes modern forests deliver biodiversity as well as timber.
