This strategy sets out an approach to the issues and opportunities that face our trees and woodlands, reflecting national policies and objectives, but focusing on regional needs and aspirations. Its purpose is to put trees and woodlands on the regional agenda, helping to shape the actions and funding priorities of the Forestry Commission and to influence other stakeholders and partners with an interest in woodlands and the benefits that they deliver.
The Regional Woodland Strategy for the East of England will help us to fully realise the assets of trees and woodland in the region. It was jointly published by the East of England Regional Assemby and the Forestry Commission on 27 November 2003.
The multiple benefits that trees and woodland bring to this region have been divided into six themes:
- Quality of Life
- Spatial Planning
- Economic Development
- Renewable Energy
- Education and Learning
- Natural Environment
