LETTER: The sale of our woodland heritage

I SEE the Forestry Commission recently sold a small forest area for £60,000.

The fortunate private purchaser went on to receive £55,000 from the English Woodland Grant Scheme to “grow and cut timber”. The Government apparently intends to continue aiding in this generous way those whom it favours with the chance to buy our woodland heritage.

How much faith should we place in rumoured guarantees of continued access?
