How we help
We support forestry in the UK by contributing to the scientific, technical and economic information required to support its development. The range of projects we support cover many topics and you can get a flavour of our recent work by following the projects pages.
We provide grant support, often in partnership with other organisations, for individuals, organisations and research institutions offering funding to assist work which supports education, research or training leading to the development of UK forestry. With assistance from the Forestry Commission, Scottish Forestry and Natural Resources Wales, our Bursary Scheme will help to fund post-graduate and masters degrees tackling many of the key issues affecting the future of forestry in this country.
Our Annual Report gives a flavour of the projects and initiatives we support and the latest report can be viewed here.
Support our work
The challenges for forests and woodlands are continually changing with the current threats of pests and diseases from Chalara fraxinea and Dothistroma septosporum being just two.
You can read a recent joint article on ash dieback by former Trustee, Prof Steve Woodward here.
You can help us to support research to tackle these threats by donating to our funds.
