Tree and Woodland Strategy

A Tree and Woodland Strategy is a comprehensive policy framework, outlining the actions required by governments, organisations and communities, to protect and enhance their local treescapes. It integrates with other local and national policies, such as those associated with planning, biodiversity, net zero and sustainable development goals. It informs the actions of local stakeholders, ensuring the resources allocated to tree care, management and establishment have the maximum benefits.

A Tree and Woodland Strategy brings existing policies, plans, guidelines and frameworks under one umbrella, offering a comprehensive guide to tree and woodland management.

As it evolves, we can help you to modify and develop it, giving it the best chance of success.

A well-managed treescape will conserve the vital benefits trees and woodlands provide for both current and future generations.
