Forest Growers Research (FGR) is part of the Forest Owners Association (FOA) and co-ordinates industry input and funding of research programmes relevant to the forest growing sector.
We do this in two main ways:
- We manage the research funded by the Forest Growers Levy Trust (FGLT) – this money comes directly from forest growers in the form of a levy on harvested timber.
- We also manage other research programmes which are funded by sources other than the levy. This includes major government and industry funded programmes including :
Automation and Robotics PGP Research Partnership
Specialty Wood Products Partnership.
Precision Silviculture Partnership
