The National Forest Company leads the creation of The National Forest, a new, wooded landscape for the nation across 200 square miles of central England. The National Forest Company was established by Government in April 1995. It is a non-departmental public body sponsored by the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (Defra).
The National Forest Company:
- Attracts and uses resources for ambitious and imaginative Forest creation that is sensitive to the landscape and environment.
- Provides the setting for new businesses, recreation, tourism and an improved quality of life
- Enhances wildlife and biodiversity.
The National Forest Company leads through working partnerships with landowners, businesses, public, private and voluntary organisations and local communities to fulfil the shared vision for the Forest. It promotes the widest possible participation in and enjoyment of the Forest.
As the Forest matures, the Company promotes at international, national and local levels the experience and knowledge emerging from this inspiring and ambitious project.
