Our Mission is the purposeful development of Wales’ forest industries from tree to product to benefit the economy, the environment and the people of Wales. A forest industry that delivers public good.
Wood is an essential industrial resource for a sustainable 21st Century society. Wales grows some of the best wood in the world. Wales has easy access to substantial markets for manufactured timber products and the UK is currently the second largest importer of forest products in the world. The forest and wood supply chain in Wales is under-developed, fragmented, lacks strategic focus and is poorly aligned to deliver public good outcomes. We aim to oversee a substantial increase in quantity, value, resilience and purpose aligned to deliver public good of the sector. We aim to increase the number of Welsh organisations and individuals with an interest in the development of forestry and wood using industries in Wales. In short, we want to inspire greater ambition to create a renewed wood culture in Wales.
