Regions of Provenance Great Britain is divided into four Regions of Provenance. http://www.forestry.gov.uk/forestry/INFD-72KLDL These are defined areas within which similar ecological and climatic characteristics are found. They provide a framework for specifying sources of Forest Reproductive Material (FRM). For native species, these Regions of Provenance have been split into a total of 24 non-statutory native seed zones. Seed zones are in turn divided where appropriate into two altitude zones, below 300m and above 300m. There is a different set of seed zones for native Scots Pine. Definitions of Origin and Provenance The origin of FRM describes that part of the natural range of the species from which the material originally derived. The term provenance is used to describe the location of the source from which the reproductive material was collected.

Physical recreation feature on the ground best depicted as point. These features a divided into eight Categories... Signage - FC branded signs, information and navigational aids, which have management activity and investment (e.g. trailhead, waymarker, information board, access point, finger post). Built feature - Purpose built and installed FC asset, which has management activity and investment (e.g. Gate, stile, bin, barrier, ticket machine, counter, steps, footbridge, BBQ, bollard, service point (e.g. bike wash, tap)). Forest furniture - Purpose built and installed FC asset, which has management activity and investment (e.g. Bench, seat, picnic table). Exercise - Purpose built and installed FC asset, which has management activity and investment (e.g. Activity point). Play equipment - Purpose built and installed FC asset, which has management activity and investment (e.g. Play component, structure). Viewpoint - A feature which has management activity and investment. Art feature - Purpose built and installed FC asset or agreed feature, which has management activity and investment (e.g. Art work, sculpture). Forest entrance - Regularly used feature to gain access to the forest/FE estate (e.g. Car park or layby access point). Miscellaneous - Features which do not fall into one of the existing feature types, but required to be captured for management purposes. Within each Category there are a number of Asset types....

The Woodland Carbon Code (www.forestry.gov.uk/carboncode) is the standard for UK woodland creation projects where carbon is accounted for. It is managed by the Forestry Commission. All projects have to register, and are publicly available on the UK Woodland Carbon Registry, managed by Markit (www.markit.com/product/registry). Once registered, they are validated at the outset and then verified at regular intervals throughout the project to check the amount of carbon sequestered, and that the project is sustainably managed. Woodland Carbon Code projects are expected to be managed in line with their agreed management plan (to ensure the predicted amount of carbon sequestration is realised), and a landowner has the responsibility to ensure future landowners are aware of the commitment of a particular land area to the Woodland Carbon Code, should an area of woodland be sold. This dataset gives the spatial extent of the Woodland Carbon Code projects, along with their current status, species type, and country. The majority of projects also receive a woodland creation grant, but some Woodland Carbon Code projects also include non-grant aided areas, or are not grant aided at all. Woodland Carbon Code statistics are produced quarterly on the last day of March, June, September and December and available from http://www.forestry.gov.uk/forestry/infd-93yjte. This layer will be updated each quarter alongside the statistics update.
GB_ROADS is compiled from Forest road network data managed by Forestry Civil Engineering. The data relates to forest road Classification. Forest Roads are categorised on the basis of intended usage (as listed below) rather than the specification used in their construction or upgrading. This can mean that, at a particular point in time, a Class A main road or a Class B spur road may have specification features that could limit its use. Class A - Main Roads Principal timber haulage route on a long-term basis. Constructed to high specification. Maintained to a high standard. Limiting features shown on road map. All year but not all weather. Class B - Spur Roads Used by timber haulage lorries for specific operations. Full geometric and safety standards for stated use. Specification tailored to suit purpose. Possibility that surfacing not high quality or durable. Long term maintenance minimal. Each usage subject to individual engineering assessment. Limiting features noted for each particular contract. Class C - Other Roads Roads other than Main or Spur roads. Maintenance dependent on usage. Not normally used by timber haulage lorries. Use by timber haulage lorries subject to the same individual engineering assessment as Class B roads.

A Dark Sky Park is a place with exceptionally dark night skies, a place where people have committed to keeping those skies dark, by controlling light pollution. In November 2009, the International Dark-sky Association designated Galloway Forest Park as only the fourth Dark Sky Park in the world and the first in the UK. But that's not all. The Galloway Park is REALLY dark - a Gold Tier Dark Skies park. Very few people live in the 300 square miles of forest and hills in the park so nights really are black - apart from the stars! Forestry Commission Scotland and the people of the park are committed to keeping it that way.
