We are Forestry Commission.

We are Government’s forestry experts, responsible for working with land owners and managers, businesses and local communities to protect, improve and expand woodlands throughout England.

We provide expertise and advice, develop partnerships with others, offer incentives and enforce regulations.

The Forestry Commission, in partnership with the University of Cumbria and the Institute of Chartered Foresters is offering a first of its kind Development Woodland Officer apprenticeship programme – designed to kickstart a career in forestry.
