Increasing interest in forestry in Britain has followed the search for alternative land uses to agriculture and the growing importance of conservation. Research requirements have adapted to this new situation. This Occasional Paper looks at recent trends and seeks to ask whether resources are reasonably matched to requirements. At least seven public agencies are engaged in funding forestry research in Britain and a similar number actually undertaking this research. Information provided by the funding agencies has been collated from 1982-1988 in order that an analysis of trends in forestry research can be made. This collation has been done under the auspices of the Forestry Research Coordination Committee which was established in 1982 to promote better coordination of forestry research in Britain.
