The Forestry Commission’s new Science and Innovation Strategy aims to produce high-quality, relevant research capable of supporting the sustainable management of forests, woodlands and trees in Britain. We welcome your input to this implementation phase of the strategy. Your help will ensure that the commissioning of research programmes will continue to support our forests and woodlands and reflect the interests of the multitude of forestry policymakers, practitioners, researchers and end users who use and benefit from them.
The discussions and initial ideas on the key issues and research questions listed here were generated by the cross-border research workshop held in Edinburgh in May. Your feedback on these will feed into the formulation of research programmes and help us to determine research priorities. In order to participate, simply register using the link at the top of the page. You can comment on existing ideas, or if you think we’ve missed an important research question, create a new idea. Don’t forget to vote for ideas, by clicking the stars underneath, to let us know which questions you think are most important!
