Welsh Government Forestry Policy

These Policy Position papers provide further background and evidence for the outcomes sought in WG's Woodlands for Wales strategy. The main audience will be those responsible for policy development and implementation in statutory and third sector organisations throughout Wales. We hope too that they will be of wider relevance to those with an interest in Woodlands for Wales.

Each Policy Position proposes an 'Agenda for Action'.  These collectively provide the implementation framework for the whole Woodlands for Wales strategy. The 5-year Action Plan for Woodlands for Wales takes its lead from the combined Policy Position 'Agendas' and the Plan sets out the short-term priorities for all the organisations helping to implement the strategy.
