Wood is a renewable product and it can be used for a wide variety of purposes including building materials, furniture, paper and fuel.
Our sustainable timber industry is a vital part of what we do. It supports jobs, provides timber and helps to make our other work possible.
Britain leads the way in certification of sustainable forest management and all Forestry Commission land is independently Forest Stewardship Council® (FSC®) certified. This means that you can be confident that Forestry Commission woodlands are managed sustainably across the full range of our activities including timber production, conservation, recreation and health and safety.
