132. Should We Sell Our National Forests?

Description

The Forestry Commission (FC) was set up in 1919, straight after World War1 (WWI) to ensure that Britain had a strategic supply of timber in case there was ever another World war. Since the middle ages, the amount of forest had been falling and Britain was forced to rely on imports to supply the timber it needed in WW1.

This Environmental Studies Factsheet explains:
• Why was timber so important in WW1?
• Forest Management.
