The application covers each of the following elements: Biodiversity, climate change, historic environment, landscape, people, soil, and water.
The eBook has initially been made available in standard 'ePub' format, readable by iOS and Android devices. A Kindle version will be available soon.
Forestry Commission head of analysts Roger Coppock said: "We believe the UKFS eBook will be welcomed by forest managers, providing as it does a handy checklist of the requirements of the UK Forestry Standard in a highly portable format which can be easily used in the field.
"We will welcome feedback from users as we anticipate providing other key forest management guidance in digital formats."
The eBook file can be downloaded from the UKFS and publications pages of the Forestry Commission website at www.forestry.gov.uk/ukfs and www.forestry.gov.uk/publications, along with pdf versions of the full documents.
