Forest Management Plans

In 2020/21 Council sought Forestry Stewardship Council (FSC) accreditation.

FSC accreditation is about applying good commercial forestry management practices to set a leadership example as a forest owner and obtain best access opportunities to the local processing market. The foundation of any FSC certification scheme is based on environmentally appropriate, socially beneficial and economically viable forest management practices.
