Canopy Directory and Guidance

Woodland Hub

Empowering and enabling woodland owners to take the first steps in woodland management.

The Who:What:Where Woodland Hub and Directory will guide woodland owners in the right direction, offering them both practical information in the palm of their hand and access to the products and services they may need.

Woodland advice is one of the core services that Cumbria Woodlands has been offering for 30 years. Feedback from this process has guided us towards this project and has given us the clarity to now offer this combined solution. This project links owners with both guidance and services, thus supporting them but also supporting the industry.

The Woodland Hub is made up of two major strands-


A series of first steps guides developed to help woodland owners navigate different elements of managing their trees. Linked to the Directory, owners will be able to access both the information they need and the means to make that happen in one place.

We will work with a reference group of local users to decide what is most important for this targeted guidance, such as, what to do in the event of storm damage, or how to begin bringing a neglected woodland back into management.

Cumbrian Forest Services Directory

Aimed at both woodland owners and advisors in Cumbria, this is a freely accessible directory of individuals and organisations operating across Cumbria, covering all aspects of woodland management. As part of this project we are inviting individuals, organisations and firms to opt-in to the Directory for FREE for the duration of the pilot.

Both the Who:What:Where Guidance and the Directory will be available online and via a mobile app. This means learning, decisions and objectives can be made in the context of the live woodland environment.
