The Forest Canopy Foundation (FCF) is a partnership of professionals from the forestry industry, formed in response to the climate crisis and focusing on increasing woodland creation at scale across England. By addressing the opportunity to plant trees and alleviate climate change, the work of the FCF will support the government’s target of achieving net zero carbon emissions by 2050.
Engaging with policy makers, investors, landowners and the government, the FCF has been designed as a not-for-profit organisation, helping to shape forestry across England making it more feasible to plant trees.
The FCF is made up of a group of directors from independent private sector forestry companies who passionately believe that the only way to achieve the goal is for them to work together. To make an impact, collaborative working is vital.
It utilises the skills and professional heritage of all the companies and manages an innovative scheme, combining public and private finance and landowner interest to achieve woodland planting that all can be proud of.
As with all carbon initiatives, auditing and traceability is vital and FCF have partnered with an independent body, Grown in Britain (GiB), to enable and ensure the reliable delivery of tree planting.
