Endorsement by Dan Rogerson

This strategy marks a significant new phase for the evolution of the National Forest Company. Government investment and the Company's leadership have created an asset that is clearly valued nationally and locally.

As the National Forest Company now pursues the conclusions of its Government Triennial Review conducted last year, we will continue to support the Company in making a phased transition towards independence from Government over the next decade.

This will bring the future direction of The National Forest and leadership through the Company even closer to the heart of the communities within it and I am sure it will continue to have the support of all sectors and partners as it fulfils its potential as one of the most significant examples of sustainable development in the country.
