Sir Harry Studholme has been confirmed as chair of Forestry Commission for a three-year term. He has been a non-executive Forestry Commissioner since 2007 and its interim chair since January 2013.

He said: "Over the past year as interim chair, one huge privilege has been to work both with the dedicated, resourceful and expert staff of the Forestry Commission and with the wider community of this country who love and care for our trees.

"From tree officers in our cities to contractors in our most remote forests, from nurserymen to growers, timber professionals and processors of our timber, I look forward to continuing to work with this exceptional community."

He has owned and managed forests in southwest England for more 20 years, and was deputy chair of the Independent Panel on Forestry which reported in July 2012 on the future of forestry in England.

He has also chaired the South West Regional Development Agency and the Finding Sanctuary project for marine conservation.
