This review provides evidence of preferences for artificial infrastructure and facilities, and other natural features (alongside trees) that different people favour in different treescapes. Evidence is drawn from 41 international studies from 2002-2022.
This review aims to answer the question “what are the public perspectives of
woodland creation, expansion, management and maintenance?” (where woodland is
taken to refer to trees in any location and context).
Using a combination of structured search strings and key word searches, the search
process uncovered 81 relevant publications from 15 countries, published between
1996 and 2021 (inclusive).
Given the policy ambitions for tree planting and woodland expansion across Great
Britain, from the United Kingdom (UK), Welsh and Scottish Governments, the
findings from this review are timely. The findings provide valuable evidence of
possible public reactions to new planting, afforestation and changes to
management, and identify gaps in the evidence where further work is required.
Summary of a workshop for researchers, policy makers and practitioners to discuss the progress and practicalities of developing a National Ecological Network in Scotland. Embedded in this approach to more sustainable land use is the need to take stock of progress towards regional and national ecological networks to increase resilience into the future.
Floodplains are important natural capital assets which
deliver a wide range of benefits to people. The interface
between terrestrial and freshwater ecosystems in
floodplains fosters both a wealth and a complexity of
resources that are challenging to measure and compare.
Final report from study to provide evidence of the public value of the Forestry Commission Public Forest Estate in England and establish whether people have different perceptions and expectations of publicly owned forests compared to those in other forms of ownership. By Claudia Carter, Anna Lawrence, Rebecca Lovell and Liz O’Brien.
