As part of the companies commitment to providing its clients with clarity regarding the development of the projects, GWD Forestry entered into a partnership agreement with UTAD (University of Trás-os-Montes e Alto Douro). The terms of the agreement meant that each year GWD Forestry would receive the universities top forestry students who would spend time at the companies projects preparing an independent third party report in relation to the  companies forestry operations, alongside reporting on growth and yield data as the project progressed. These reports were subsequently issued to IFU holders each year upon completion and can be downloaded in the reports section of this section of the website.
