Forest Enterprise England

Forest Enterprise England is the organisation responsible for managing the English Public Forest Estate. We aim to maintain our position as a leader in delivering and demonstrating sustainable, integrated land management. Increasingly we work with others, nationally and locally, in looking after the estate for the good of everyone – today and for the future.

We think long term and are open to innovation, achieving internationally recognised standards for land and business management. In our work we embrace both a public service and business ethos and aim to maintain and enhance the overall financial viability of the estate. Our mission for the estate is to work with others to keep the Public Forest Estate as a special place for wildlife, for people to enjoy and for businesses to thrive- and achieve this by adopting a strategy that integrates all the three drivers of sustainable land management: People, Economy and Nature.
