Former ICF member Chris Starr to chair task force

Former Institute of Chartered Forestry council member Chris Starr is to chair the task force that will look at the regulation of forestry in England.

The group will aim to encourage more active management of forests and make it easier to create woodlands. Starr said:

"This is an exciting and timely initiative, designed to encourage woodland creation and promote sustainable management. Many woodlands in England are neglected, partly because the owners see the regulatory environment as a disincentive to active involvement."
