Insects and their allies play a key role in forest ecosystem function, supporting processes such as decomposition and pollination. They are important to the natural control of pest species, whilst also forming the main part of this group. The UK forest estate, at around 12% land cover, is diverse being comprised of both native and non-native tree species ranging from ancient woodland to plantation and with varied management goals. Many UK forests are of conservation value, but low semi-natural forest cover means that highly managed plantations also have a role to play in supporting forest-associated insects and their allies.
