This data is the source dataset for the Forestry Commissions Headline Performance Indicator: 'Percentage of woodland in active management (including the Public Forest Estate)'.

This Indicator forms part of the Forestry Commissions Corporate Plan Performance Indicators and Woodland Indicators 2011/12.

This FC website gives more information about the Performance Indicators: http://www.forestry.gov.uk/website/forestry.nsf/byunique/infd-8kmhu6

For the purposes of the corporate indicator, 'Actively Managed’ woodland is currently defined using the following FC administrative data sources. It is recognised that there are other woodlands that could be considered to be 'managed'.

1) Any English Woodland Grant Scheme (EWGS) Woodland Creation Grant (WCG) whose first instalment payment date was < 10 years ago at the end of the reporting period. 2) Any English Woodland Grant Scheme (EWGS) Woodland Management Grant (WMG) whose first instalment payment date was < 5 years ago at the end of the reporting period. 3) Any English Woodland Grant Scheme (EWGS) Woodland Planning Grant (WPG) whose first instalment payment date was < 10 years ago at the end of the reporting period. 4) Any English Woodland Grant Scheme (EWGS) Woodland Improvement Grant (WIG) whose first instalment payment date was < 5 years ago at the end of the reporting period. 5) Any Farm Woodland Premium Scheme (FWPS) and Farm Woodland Premium (FWP) whose scheme approval date was <30 years ago at the end of the reporting period. 6) Any Woodland Grants Scheme Mk3 (WGS3) schemes that have been in contract in the 15 years up until the end of the reporting period. 7) Any Felling Licence Applications (FLA) whose registration date was <10 years ago at the end of the reporting period. 8) All Public Forest Estate land owned and/or managed by the Forestry Commission at the end of the reporting period.

EXCLUDED: EWGS Woodland Assessment Grant (WAG), EWGS Woodland Regeneration Grant (WRG), Forest Plans, Dedication, WGS2, WGS1 and Natural England’s HLS.

The 'denominator' used for calculation of the indicator, i.e. the figure used as the entire woodland area in England, was that obtained from the most recent version of the National Forest Inventory (NFI) at the time of computation.

The administrative data sources are integrated to produce a single layer indicating woodland management status and this is provided as a georeferenced .tiff raster file here. Cell values: 0 = Unmanaged woodland, 1 = Actively managed woodland. Cell size: 25m.
