Consultation on proposals to revise Woodlands for Wales - the Welsh Assembly Government's strategy for trees and woodlands
Looks at the contributions trees and woodlands can make to improving the quality of life for the people of Wales. It is split into 5 main areas: Welsh woodlands - how woodlands will be managed in Wales in future; responding to climate change - how woodlands need to adapt to climate change as well as how they can help reduce the effects of climate change in the wider environment; woodlands for people - encouraging the use of woodlands by local communities, for learning, tourism and recreation and creating local jobs; a competitive and integrated forest sector - making the best uses of Welsh wood and developing the timber industry in Wales; and environmental quality - protecting and enhancing the biodiversity, cultural heritage and landscape qualities of Welsh trees and woodlands.
Consultation closed on 14 October 2008. Superseded by Woodlands for Wales - the Welsh Assembly Government's strategy for woodlands and trees (WAG, 2009).
