About LEAF

The Leeds Ecosystem, Atmosphere and Forest (LEAF) centre at the University of Leeds brings together forest-related research and activities from across campus. LEAF links the University with external organisations, such as local authorities, charities, government departments and the media, ensuring that our research has a tangible and beneficial impact on the world’s forests and their communities.

By linking researchers across faculties, LEAF aims to strengthen existing collaborations and encourage new inter-departmental partnerships, establishing the University of Leeds as a leading national centre in forest research. LEAF hosts regular events and maintains an active online presence, providing researchers with opportunities to disseminate the findings of their work.
