The restructuring is the result of Defra’s Spending Review period to 2015, to reduce resource spending by 29 per cent and capital spending by 34 per cent.
The commission had announced in February 2011 plans to axe 350 jobs in England and 100 in Scotland as its 2011/12 budget of £48.47m is set to drop to £32.45m in 2014/15.
An announcement of 250 losses, from its 1,082 posts in England, was made in May 2012.
Chief executive Simon Hodgson said:
"We have dealt with a period of change like no other in the Forestry Commission’s 90 year history. It has been a challenging year for us to create a smaller, more efficient organisation remaining focused on balancing the needs of people, business and the environment.
"We keep our core responsibilities to protect, improve and expand England’s woodlands and will do things that only Government should do. Now that we’re smaller, and often working across larger areas, it also means focusing our efforts where they’re really going to count.
