Grants Regulation and Certification

Forestry for Biomass  >  Grants, regulations and certification

The Forestry Commission works to support forestry for the public benefit through the use of grant support for good woodland management. FC is also responsible for the implementation of the Forestry Act (1967) which requires most tree felling to be licensed. A number of independent organisations exist to audit and monitor woodland management against sustainability criteria. This is particularly important for managers of larger areas of woodland as large scale users often want strong evidence of sustainable production.
