Take the survey!

Take part in a sector wide survey and have you say on the skills needed in the forestry workforce.

Lantra, Confor, Natural Resources Wales and the Forestry Commission have come together to commission this study. It aims to keep track of skills and ensure the right direction of forestry education.

Whatever size or type of organisation, please help ensure the right skills are developed:

If you are an organisation working with trees and woodlands please go to the survey here, it should take no more than 5 minutes. It is available in English & Welsh.

If you provide training or education in forestry and tree related skills/subjects there is a separate survey here.

RFS Chief Executive Christopher Williams says: “ The RFS is committed to working with other members of the Forestry Skills Forum to develop and deliver a new Forestry Skills Action Plan. We need a forestry workforce that will be able to meet the UK’s targets for more, better-managed and productive woodland.

“Well-managed woods help address the big challenges of our times, including a changing climate, loss of natural habitats, people’s wellbeing and access to nature.  The results of this survey will feed into that work.”
