Who We Are

YORWOODS are a public funded woodland initiative working in partnership with the Forestry Commission and local authorities amongst other partners (see Yorwoods Partnership section for more details). The initiative was set up in 1998 under the MAFF Objective 5b programme and concentrated its activities in the upland areas of North Yorkshire offering a range of grant and support services to the forest industry.

The initiative has evolved and it now covers the whole of North Yorkshire and undertakes project work in East and West Yorkshire as well.

Our services include:

  • Advice on woodland management issues and timber marketing
  • Woodfuel supply chain development
  • Training in forestry related courses
  • Business support to woodland owners and businesses in the timber supply chain
