UK Woodland Assurance Standard feedback
 Share this article on

The Royal Forestry Society asked members their views on the latest draft of the UK Woodland Assurance Standard and fed them back as part of the consultation process.

The Society does not hold a position on certification as this is a voluntary scheme and the decision whether to take part is for the woodland owner or manager. The views of the 64 members who responded can be seen in full here.
