A senior minister in the UK Government's Brexit team has had discussions with Confor on the major issues affecting the forestry and timber sector during a visit to a sawmill.
The forestry and timber sector has a strong opportunity to take advantage of a post-Brexit world where silo thinking on land use breaks down.
“It is really important that we look at change as an opportunity, not just a challenge” says Confor chief executve Stuart Goddall.
A packed Fringe event at the Conservative Party Conference, organised by Confor and The Woodland Trust, also heard a rallying-cry for creative thinking about rural land use and policy in the new environment.
Confor has released an ambitious blueprint for a thriving forestry and timber sector as the United Kingdom maps out a post-Brexit future.
Confor continued its work to shape a thriving future for the forestry and timber sector after Brexit by consulting the industry at the APF Show.
Confor's report on the potential implications of Brexit on the forestry and timber sector has been published by the All-Party Parliamentary Group on Forestry (APPGF).
Confor's report on the impact of leaving the EU has been re-published by the All-Party Parliamentary Group on Forestry, with recommendations for the UK Government and a foreword by the Chair and Vice-Chair of the APPGF.
CONFOR Chief Executive Stuart Goodall has updated members on the next steps to be taken as the forestry and timber sector continues to react to the Brexit vote.
