That’s how many of our supporters took the trouble in just 14 days to respond to our quick poll about the new public forest estate management organisation, proposed details of which were announced by the Forestry Commission in August.
We submitted our full response to the fifteen questions in the Commission’s request for feedback on Monday which included details of your poll results.
Within four hours the Commission has been in touch to say that it “wished to record its appreciation for all the effort that has clearly gone into this from both your members and staff….there are many carefully argued and cogent points made and we will of course be considering them closely as we take the work forward and prepare advice to Ministers.”
Your fantastic response strengthens our feedback to Government showing that we speak for thousands of forest enthusiasts.
We now await the next steps and will keep you posted.
