Covid-19: Letter of comfort

For our woodland owners

Many of you normally actively manage your woodlands at this time of year, spending time in them working, walking or just observing the onset of spring. Some are managed as part of small-scale supply chains (for example for firewood), others for biodiversity, your own firewood and recreation.

To help you, in the event that you are challenged while going about your necessary tasks and duties in your woodland, we have created a letter to explain the definition of “essential work”, as defined by government guidance, which is being carried out by woodland managers, foresters and the related supply chain. Here is the letter for you to print out and keep with you: Small Woodland Supply Chain Letter of Comfort

In addition, Confor has produced a series of letters of comfort to show to anyone challenging your right to work. These can be found here.
