Information on national visitor and recreation surveys that include questions on visits to forests and woodland is provided in Forestry Statistics.
The Forestry Commission has also conducted various surveys (some in collaboration with other agencies) to determine how the national forest estate contributes to people’s lives. In particular, much work has been done on obtaining information about recreational use of forests.
