About The Forestry Commission

The Forestry Commission in England is recognised and respected as an international leader in sustainable forestry. Our reputation has been built on our expertise and our ability to achieve results that benefit people’s lives.

These benefits include the unique public forest estate. Here, millions of visitors enjoy a wide range of recreational activities by exploring woodlands on foot, cycle and horseback or even getting high up in the tree canopy to enjoy some totally different views. As well as timber forests we successfully manage native woodlands and other important habitats for wildlife and conservation such as heathlands and bogs. But more than this, our work is also increasingly benefiting people through improvements to their environments – close to where they live and where they work

Westonbirt, the National Arboretum is owned and managed by the Forestry Commission. The arboretum’s mission is: To connect people with trees to improve the quality of life’.
