Forestry Commission

The Forestry Commission is a Government Department established in 1919, which reports collectively and individually to the Secretary of State for Scotland, the Minister for Agriculture, Fisheries and Food, and the Secretary of State for Wales. The Forestry Commission advises on, and implements, Government forestry policy. Its areas of responsibility cover timber production, recreation, conservation, forestry advice, grant-aid and research, as well as being responsible for the management of over 2 million acres of land in Scotland, England and Wales, which make up 40% of the UK's forests.

The forestry commission is divided into the Policy and Resources Group, the Forestry Authority and Forest Enterprise. The main responsibility of Forest Enterprise is the multi-purpose management of the national forests and complementary forest estate throughout Great Britain, this includes harvesting, marketing, corporate planning, seed and plant supply, conservation and heritage, estate policy and planning, acquisitions, and mechanical and civil engineering. The Policy and Resources Group hold responsibility for Parliamentary and policy aspects of the Commission's departmental duties.
