Conservation & Stewardship
The Windsor Estate is home to a vast array of flora and fauna. The long-term stewardship of its habitats and wildlife – by The Crown Estate – has made the Estate an internationally recognised example of biodiversity, sustainability and conservation.
Forest management is a long-term cycle of planting, thinning and felling trees that can rotate for decades, if not centuries. We balance this with a long-term plan that guides our decisions on sustainable timber production, biodiversity and wildlife habitats.
The Estate has been practicing sustainable land use for hundreds of years. As part of The Crown Estate, we recognise the climate emergency and are committed to becoming net zero by 2030.
