Value from Supporting Local Forestry Businesses: A Scoping Study

This scoping study describes the sector of forestry activity which is locally-based, locally-organised, and typically small-scale. It aims to assess the extent of knowledge and the quality and usefulness of evidence, in order to understand the sector’s value and how best to support it. This study is a preliminary evaluation of the sector in order to scope a longer term process to improve the knowledge base and priorities for support.
