Independent Panel on Forestry

I have recently been appointed to the new Independent Panel on Forestry Policy in England, recently launched by DEFRA.  I, along with other panel members and chair, the Right Reverend James Jones, will be advising DEFRA on the future direction of forestry and woodland policy in England and on the role of the Forestry Commission.  The aim is to produce a first report by the autumn with final recommendations presented to DEFRA by spring 2012.
