The previous section provided information on visits to all woodlands (regardless of ownership), based on data from household surveys.  This section provides information on visits to Forestry England/ Forestry and Land Scotland/ Natural Resources Wales/ Forest Service woodland only, based on data from on-site surveys and administrative sources.

The information provided in this section covers:

  • Visits to the National Forest Estate in Scotland (Forestry and Land Scotland woodlands) from the All Forests Scotland surveys run from 2004 to 2007 and in 2012-13.  An updated estimate of total visits in 2016 is also provided.
  • Day visitors to Northern Ireland Forest Service sites where an admission charge was made.

Further information on these and other sources of on-site visit data are available from the Sources chapter and from the recreation statistics web pages at
