Managing the forest
The National Forest Company recognises that a healthy forest is a well-managed forest. As such it is promoting sound silvicultural practice including pruning to generate trees of timber-producing potential, thinning the young woodlands as they develop, harvesting timber crops and replanting.

We all have a part to play!
The creation of The National Forest can be sensibly regarded as a move in the right direction. Supporting the Forest, in any way, is a worthwhile step to take towards reducing atmospheric carbon. However, mitigation is only part of the solution. We all need to choose a less energy-consuming lifestyle if the effects of global warming are to be confronted.
The Government has also developed a carbon calculator for individuals and households.
