Official country guidance

Forestry in the UK is a devolved matter, so each country has their own forestry programmes or strategies that set out policies and priorities for woodland creation and management. Forestry research is also conducted at the UK level, and the climate change adaptation guidance and resources on the Climate Change Hub are UK-wide, for example UK Forestry Standard publications, although any significant local variations will be highlighted where appropriate.
