Forests are an incredible resource with the power to;
Regenerative forestry sets out proposals for policymakers, the forestry sector and civil society for how we can collectively better manage forests for our climate, nature and people. This includes how we currently manage existing forests, but also how we create new forest areas.
The future of forestry, one that delivers for climate, nature and people looks like:
Regenerative forestry is fully integrated with agroecological farming and conservation to achieve the most impact.
• Adopt regenerative forest management practices across the entire forest to deliver optimal climate, nature and social benefits.
• Implement a step change in the species diversity and in-stand age structure of timber producing forests, with a presumption for the maintenance of forest conditions by reducing reliance on clear felling and the mainstream adoption of lower impact silviculture systems, such as continuous cover.
• Work with, and develop new ways to support, farmers in the integrated management of woodlands and trees within farming systems and the wider landscape.
