Regenerative Forestry

This is a report researched and written by me for the Soil Association, published Feb 2022. I coined the term 'regenerative forestry' as a complement to regenerative agriculture, advocating a land use which not only produces timber and fibre for us, but which also brings benefits for biodiversity, climate and people. It can be done and there are many fine examples.
