    Campaigns & Advocacy

    Forestry and Fibre are sectors often overlooked in land-use policy. As a union representing landworkers from a variety of land-based sectors in the UK, we advocate for better policy to support sustainable forestry, for integration of agroforestry into our food production systems and for more support for sustainable fibre production. 

    Our ‘woody branch’ of forestry members is working on developing campaigns to demand more government support and funding for sustainable forestry. In 2020 we published our Forestry Manifesto, outlining key policy asks for building a more sustainable and agroecological forestry and woodland sector, and we continue to lobby these policy demands whenever and wherever possible.

    We are currently in the process of building relations with allied forestry organisations and woodland groups, profiling sustainable woodland management by our members, and developing strategies to overcome the barriers of getting trees in the ground and our woodlands into management. We believe that with good planning and investment, the UKs forests can help to address the climate crisis and restore our ecosystems, while also boosting employment and social wellbeing.
