Describes research work into the potential for wood energy associated with the Wyre Forest. The study derived from English Nature’s national policy work with the forestry sector, specifically to influence the local deployment of the England Forestry Strategy to support nature conservation priorities for Sites of Special Scientific Interest (SSSIs) and ancient woodlands. It was progressed under the local work programme for the FC/English Nature Joint Statement of Intent. The research has informed English Nature’s and the Forestry Commission’s national positioning and advocacy with respect to biofuels and renewable energy policy and illustrated the key factors involved in establishing a local wood fuel supply chain in lowland Britain.
