Focus on Forestry First Ltd is a not for profit social enterprise company established in September 2016. It developed out of a WG/EU funded project managed by mwmac Ltd between January 2010 & July 2015.

The company remit is to support firms within the Welsh Trees & Timber sector to access skills, plan staff development and increase the qualification levels of operators within the sector.

The development to this company was through two WG/EU funded projects beginning in 2010 with Focus on Forestry First; continuing with a sector consultation about the way forward called Focus on Forestry First – The Future (16.2).

The new company has submitted (and is currently awaiting approval) a new programme in line with the outcome of the sector consultation – Forestry Focused Future.
