This "green" part of the web site is designed for existing or prospective woodland landowners, managers or tenants. Many will be newcomers to commercial recreation and will be seeking new ways to make money from their land and woods.

The best place to start is in the "helping you" section. This part of the site helps you search for commercial recreation activities that might be applicable in woodland. Each activity is associated with a series of relevant case studies and invaluable information notes to help you decide what might work for you.

These information notes detail the key issues you will need to consider when planning a commercial recreation activity.
