The picture on B1 at the top of this post was taken in Bellever Forest, which is managed by the Forestry Commission. If you like trees you’ll be interested in this.

New name for the Forestry Commission

The Forestry Commission, guardian of our woodlands and forests for 100 years, are changing their name. They didn’t consult us but we would have perhaps suggested:

The Tree People (too vegan?)
Woods R Us (too abbreviated?)
Forest-Yay! (too millennial?)
Land-of-Trees (too Blonde?)
Forestree (too hard to spell?)
Needles and Cones (too ambiguous?)
Enviroforest (too green?)

It has to be said that the new name the Forestry Commission have chosen is far more sensible…

Forestry England (does exactly what it says on the tree!)

And that we like this strap line…

It’s a job that never stops growing.

Have a look here to find out more about how Forestry England are celebrating their 100th birthday and maybe join in with a bit of the outdoor fun! We like the look of the Big Forest Find and we think the kids will too!

PS If you live in Scotland or Wales, don’t be offended, you have Forest and Land Scotland and Natural Resources Wales to take care of your woodlands.
