Royal Forestry Society

The RFS is the largest and longest established education charity promoting the wise management of woods in England, Wales and Northern Ireland.

Our mission is to inspire passion and excellence in woodland management. We do this through education and knowledge-sharing, which have been at the heart of the RFS ethos since its foundation in 1882.

This is our vision: that all woodlands are actively managed, and valued by all, for their social, economic and environmental benefits. To this end we provide a suite of educational offers: from woodland visits for primary school children, through to bursaries for forestry students and opportunities for all interested adults to learn how to manage woodlands sustainably, through training, mentoring, field meetings and online resources.

The RFS makes a unique and distinguished contribution, through the dissemination of practical and applied learning to all those involved in caring for trees and woodland. This learning is based on a long history of evidence based enquiry; informed experimentation, and willingness to share expertise freely. Our membership is inclusive of all woodland interests, which enriches the quality of this learning. Our divisional structure enables an annual programme of woodland meetings which is second to none, and our journal is highly prized for its unique mix of scientific articles, practical forestry advice and personal experience.

Environmental Investigation Agency Trust

We investigate and campaign against environmental crime and abuse.

Our undercover investigations expose transnational wildlife crime, with a focus on elephants, pangolins and tigers and forest crimes such as illegal logging and deforestation for cash crops such as palm oil. We work to safeguard global marine ecosystems by addressing the threats posed by plastic pollution, bycatch and commercial exploitation of whales, dolphins and porpoises. Finally, we reduce the impact of climate change by campaigning to eliminate powerful refrigerant greenhouse gases, exposing related illicit trade and improving energy efficiency in the cooling sector. We use our findings in hard-hitting reports to campaign for new legislation, improved governance and more effective enforcement.

Our field experience is used to provide guidance to enforcement agencies and we form partnerships with local groups and activists and support their work through hands-on training.
