What do we do?
We provide grants, licences and advice to private woodland owners to encourage new tree planting and to help keep private forests under sustainable management.
Our plant health officers inspect wood imports at ports to minimise the risk from foreign pests and diseases. Our experts work with local authorities and landowners to contain and control any spread.
We licence tree felling to protect our woodlands for generations to come.
