Interreg IIIC - project part-financed by the European Union Forestry Commission Wales - Comisiwn Coedwigaeth Cymru

What is Robinwood?

Robinwood is an exciting European project looking at how trees and forests can provide new jobs and businesses to help keep rural communities alive across Europe by generating extra income.

The Italians named the project after Robin Hood, a deliberate play on the name of the UK folk hero best known for taking from the rich and giving to the poor. The aim is to help develop new sustainable business based on forestry by providing guidance and information which can help make that happen.
