Respond to the Consultation:

The Government's Consultation was launched on the 27th January and lasts for 12 weeks. (i.e. until the 20th April). The Consultation is deliberately skewed towards methods for selling off the forests, there is no option to maintain the forests under Forestry Commission management. There is no option to keep the public forests OURS.

We recommend completing the consultation in ways that enable the government to correctly understand that the best option for our public forests is that they should be publicly owned and managed by a properly resourced Forestry Commission. 84% of us think this way.

We have provided guidance for completing the consultation here.
