From 4 July 2012 to 21 July 2015, two sites in the north of England totalling 0.12 hectares were disposed of as a result of property rationalisation. In the west of England 15.5 hectares of leasehold was surrendered. During the same period land acquired by, or gifted to, the Public Forest Estate was 79.56 hectares across four sites in central, east, west and southern England. This represents a net increase in PFE land for this period.
