About Grown in Britain

Grown in Britain is creating new sustainably-managed woodland to increase the supply of British timber destined for use by local people and businesses. Whether it’s to heat our homes, in the construction of new buildings, or for retailers to create wood products that shape our everyday lives. The opportunities and the benefits of Grown in Britain are endless not just for the environment, but for people, wildlife, and our local economies.

Exploring What's Possible

Creating a sustainable timber culture and increasing the use of wood products is at the heart of Grown in Britain.

  • Sub gallery image

    2/3

    of timber is imported. Reducing our reliance on imports and growing the domestic industry is one of our core aims

  • Sub gallery image

    £4.1 billion

    is the amount the forestry sector contributes to GDP - but the sector offers so much more economic potential.

  • Sub gallery image

    40,000 people

    are employed in the forestry and primary wood processing sectors in the UK. By increasing demand for home-grown timber we can create more jobs and boost local economies.

    £484 million

    is the value to society of recreational visits to forests and woodlands each year.

  • Sub gallery image

    Only 13%

    of Britain's land area is wooded - well below the european average of 37%. We are readjusting the balance.

  • Sub gallery image

    55%

    of Britain's woods are properly managed. Redressing this would bring more wonderful products to market and benefit people, wildlife and the environment.
