Forest Holidays launch their new online resource

Forest Holidays, the UK break specialists, have just announced the launch of Forestipedia, their new online resource which lets users explore every aspect of life in a forest. This creation has come about following research they carried out on wellbeing which showed that 3.5m adults haven’t visited the natural environment during the previous 12 months.

In response to this, Forest Holidays want to share their expertise of the green and open spaces in the UK by creating an informative resource of Britain’s forests. Forestopia will include detailed descriptions of each of the forested areas ,all written by the expert Forest Rangers.

Forestipedia includes in depth information on the trees and woodland, flora and fauna, birds and bugs, beetles and various creepy crawlies that make life in the forest so rich and diverse. There is also a series of lifestyle sections written by experienced journalists and authors such as Paula Hall, author of Improving Your Relationships For Dummies who’s written a piece on how holidays can improve your relationships and award-winning travel writer Norman Miller who has contributed a section looking at the rise in popularity of foraging for food. There is also a beginners’ guide to stargazing and a guide to winter in the forest.

Jill Grinsted, Sales and Marketing Director at Forest Holidays commented: “We’re very proud of what we have achieved with this new resource. The launch content is only the beginning as we have plenty of new content ideas for 2013 onwards. We’re also keen to hear from lovers of the forest to understand what they would like to see on Forestipedia in the future. The whole purpose of Forestipedia is to be a genuinely useful and engaging resource which offers an insight into life in the forest.”

Mark Henshall, Content Director Travel at Propellernet added: “It’s excellent that Forest Holidays is using its knowledge, experience and passion for the natural environment to create an exciting and varied platform which will help people explore and discover its woodland. Looking forward we’ll be harnessing their expertise to produce inspiring and genuinely informative content such as forest ranger blogs, Q&As with nature experts and cycling and dog-walking maps. Forestipedia is an engaging hub where people can enjoy dropping in to make informed choices and get the most out of their holiday.”
