The popular report, “Managing for Resilience” has been republished by the Royal Forestry Society (RFS) in partnership with the Forestry Commission to include the winners and runners up in the All-England Woodland Resilience Awards.
The Awards which were hosted by the Forestry Climate Change Partnership to mark COP26. A total of 12 case studies are now included. The report which is available online here alongside a comprehensive resources document detailing free forest management resources linked to resilience from climate change, adaptations and surveying and maintenance of the soil resource.
RFS Chief Executive Christopher Williams said:
“One of the greatest challenges for our members is making sure their woodlands are resilient to climate change.
“There is no one answer. What all these case studies have in common is a willingness to act now, consider the advice that is available and look at diverse species to spread the risks. It is a must read for all who are looking to develop their woodland.”
Emily Fensom, Forestry Commission, said:
“This series highlights the urgency with which woodland owners and managers in England are responding to the climate emergency and the effect it will have on their trees, woods and forests. The ten case studies provide useful examples of how management can be altered to enhance resilience.”
