They would like to hear your views on:
- What ‘a Forest Services body’ should do and not do
- The future funding of the Public Forest Estate
- Access to woodland in your neighbourhood
- Urban tree planting schemes
Defra recently stated that they have had “dozens” of people sending their ideas by e-mail to them. That doesn’t seem a lot after the initial outcry by so many….
Let’s get some more of those passionate, insightful and practical thoughts over to them before time runs out – the door effectively closes on public engagement in November, in order for the official response to be prepared.
Taking part in our new Tell Owen action will also put your opinions straight into the Defra Forestry Panel inbox. To help you consider the big picture for woodland cover, access and threats we have produced an infographic for every county in England, so you can see the real picture for woods and trees and the problems they face where you live. You could include this information in your response.
Trees cannot send e-mails or fill out surveys – but you can! Be the voice they need. Please do these two things for the future of England’s woods and trees today.
