Farm & Community Forestry Support
InterSilva is a not-for-profit company providing consultation and delivery of services to help develop and support farm and community-based forestry, and InterSilva undertakes woodland management services for landowners. The company is based in Somerset, UK and offers its services to individuals, communities and international organisations, and governments in the developing world. Woodland management services are principally focused in the Southwest of England.
Profits from the provision of services are invested in helping develop social forestry as a means of alleviating poverty, protecting and restoring natural environments and to ensure sustainable lives and livelihoods worldwide. Agroforestry, or the incorporation of trees into farming systems, is one of the means to conserve and rebuild farmland and give farmers and others living in rural communities a simple yet rich and diverse lifestyle and healthy environment. We also assist in small scale forest planting and environmental restoration.
