There is growing interest in the potential to use woodland measures to help reduce flood risk. The Forestry Commission has been directly involved in a number of trials and demonstration projects, has advised others in a number of cases, but has become increasingly aware that there are many more individuals, groups and organisations experimenting with woodland measures to help address local flood risk issues.
The Forestry Commission commissioned JBA consulting to undertake a rapid review to try and capture some basic information about as many of these initiatives as possible, and to draw out some of the key lessons learned so far.
The findings will be fed into a much larger review of natural flood management measures that the Environment Agency are planning to undertake in 2015/2016.
