Sylva Foundation

The Sylva Foundation is a charity registered in England and Wales (No.1128516) and in Scotland (No.SC041892). We are working to revive Britain’s wood culture, following sustainable development principles.

Sylva works across Britain caring for forests to ensure they thrive for people and for nature, and supporting innovation in home-grown wood. Innovation is at the heart of much of our work, particularly in information technology, and this together with very wide partnership working and effective communications, means that we achieve a wide impact. We underpin our work with sound science — much of which we commission or support ourselves — that we then apply in powerful, practical ways in Britain’s forests.
