In the UK 2019 Public Opinion of Forestry survey, 71% of respondents aged 35 to 54 said that they had visited woodland in the last few years for walks, picnics or other recreation (Table 6.5). This compares with around three fifths (61%) of respondents aged 16 to 34 and 56% of those aged 55 or over.

Source: UK and GB Public Opinion of Forestry Surveys, 1999 to 2019.
Base: 2,000 respondents (1999, 2001, 2009 to 2019); 4,000 respondents (2003 to 2007).
1. Those stating they had visited woodland in the last few years.
2. The range of uncertainty around any result should be no more than ±3.5% (for surveys with around 2,000 respondents) and ±2.3% (for surveys with around 4,000 respondents). To compare results over time, a difference of at least 5 percentage points (for surveys each with around 2,000 respondents) is required to indicate that there is a significant difference.
These figures are outside the scope of National Statistics. For further information see the Source chapter.
