He said: "It is a great honour to be re-appointed to continue to help steer the Forestry Commission through challenging times.

"While the many benefits which sustainably managed woods and forests can provide are being increasingly recognised across society, they also continue to face a growing range of threats, from a changing climate to new pests and diseases."

Studholme has owned and managed forests in south-west England for more than 20 years, and is as former deputy chair of the Independent Panel on Forestry. He currently chairs the Phaunos Timber Fund, an international investment trust.

The appointment appointment was made on the advice of forestry ministers in England and Scotland. Studholme's new term starts tomorrow (10 February).
