TitleForestry Commission of Great Britain
CreatorForestry Commission, GB
DescriptionThe Forestry Commission of Great Britain is the Government Department responsible for the protection and expansion of Britain's forests and woodlands. Forestry in Great Britain is a devolved matter, meaning that forestry matters in England, Scotland and Wales are dealt by Forestry Commission England, Forestry Commission Scotland and Forestry Commission Wales, respectively. These agencies report directly to the appropriate government Minister, providing advice on policy and implementing that policy within the relevant country. [Note that the Forestry Commission does not have responsibility for forestry in Northern Ireland. This is dealt with by the Northern Ireland Forest Service, which is an agency of the Northern Irish Department of Agriculture and Rural Development]. The Forestry Commission also has three executive agencies. Forest Enterprise England, Forest Enterprise Scotland and Forest Research. Forest Enterprise England and Forest Enterprise Scotland are responsible for the management of publicly owned forests. (Forestry Commission Wales are responsible for management of the public forest estate in Wales). Forest Research is the agency responsible for carrying out research across Great Britain.
