HC Deb 01 December 1965 vol 721 c221W
Earl of Dalkeith

asked the Minister of Land and Natural Resources what is the present total acreage of land in England in forestry use; and how much of this figure is officially described as being in full productive use.

Mr. Willey

At 30th September, 1965, the estimated area of land in forestry use in England was about 1,800,000 acres, of which about 800,000 acres were fully productive, in the sense of being mature enough to produce saleable material.
