About us

Cornwall has a wonderfully rich canopy of trees already. Our canopy includes:

  • ancient and veteran trees
  • orchards
  • urban trees
  • wildlife rich woodlands
  • hedge and parkland trees
  • farm woodlands
  • productive timber forests
  • and many more

Not forgetting the trees that matter to us as individuals.  Ones we have planted or have kept us company for years.  As well as trees which have provided us with wood or a subject to paint or draw. Or simply sit in its shade or shelter from the rain.

It is a really exciting time to join the Forest for Cornwall (F4C) Team and to be part of the wider Cornwall Team as we move towards Carbon Neutrality by 2030.

The F4C Team are moving forward over the coming months and you can be part of this and form our work as we go forward. We will be working with those establishing trees as well as with businesses and volunteers who wish to support this work. Together we are creating opportunities across Cornwall to enable the Forest for Cornwall to spread its canopy.

The roles are being recruited due to the significant interest in the Forest 4 Cornwall and active support from partners.

Initially the posts run to the end of March 2022. We anticipate they can extended, subject to securing funding. We will update at interview.

We are looking for a broad set of skills. We are seeking administration, customer support, GIS and communication skills. Also experience in land management, tree and woodland planting or similar fields. Team members will need to be good at driving and delivering projects. We want people who are creative, responsive, adaptable. Team players who can help to make F4C a reality and an exemplar. People who are drive by and our ambitions for a Carbon Neutral Cornwall.

The F4C team sits within the wider Environment Service. The Environment team includes many disciplines. The team works with partners to create strategic programmes and projects (e.g. Nature Recovery Network). It also manages our own assets across Cornwall. These include beaches, Countryside sites, Public Spaces and our tree assets.

If you feel you have the right skills and or experience, the aptitude and enthusiasm, please apply now. We look forward to welcoming our new team members.
