    Research and guidance on alternative methods of managing Hylobius abietis

    Research and Guidance The large pine weevil (Hylobius abietis) is the most serious pest of newly planted or naturally regenerating woodland trees on restocking sites in the UK and Ireland. On affected sites, in the absence of protective measures, losses of replanted trees will average around 50%, but in the worst...

    Role of natural flood management in flood risk reduction along highways network

    This project investigates the potential to use green infrastructure (including woodland planting) to deliver a sustainable approach to managing flood risk. The strategic road network in England faces a significant increase to disruption and risk of injury due to flooding. Predicted changes in rainfall linked to climate change will require improved...

    Woodland Creation and Expansion – Programme 6

    This research aims to find out how to expand woodland cover in a way that maximises ecological and social benefits. The programme complements the other six programmes and follows collaborative principles to produce tools which support land managers, stakeholders and policy makers to increase engagement with woodland creation activities

    How much water do forests use

    It is difficult to generalise about the effects of forestry on water resources, however some important distinctions can be drawn between the impact of conifers and broadleaves in the uplands and lowlands.

    Valuing flood regulation services for natural capital accounts

    Forests have long been associated with an ability to reduce flood flows, however valuing the contribution that forest cover makes to downstream flood alleviation is very difficult given the multiple factors and associated uncertainties involved. Despite a strong understanding of the processes by which woods and trees affect the generation and...

    Assessing the Decay and Integrity of Timber Structures used for Natural Flood Management

    Timber structures placed in watercourses and on their floodplains are effective NFM measures, restricting the flow and potentially holding large volumes of water during flood events, helping to reduce downstream flood risk. In an environment where constant wetting and drying occurs, timbers used for NFM measures have a high susceptibility...

    Changes in tree and forest ecosystem service values

    Changes in tree and forest ecosystem service values under different scenarios and visions, and different costs and benefits

    Mechanisms to deliver tree and forest ecosystem services

    Our research has explored mechanisms for delivering tree and forest ecosystem services and examined land managers’ perspectives in relation to mechanisms

    Valuing tree and forest ecosystem services

    Our research explores the value of different tree and forest ecosystem services and uses innovative methods to identify and capture those values

    Valuing and governing tree and forest ecosystem services

    This research provides new insights into how to recognise and understand the value of ecosystem services provided by trees and forests.

    Land management in lowland catchments for integrated flood risk reduction

    The LANDWISE project is a collaboration of academics, policy makers and practitioners to investigate the impact of land use and management on flood risk in the Upper Thames catchment. It will quantify through measurement and modelling by how much, where and how the flood risk benefits can be up-scaled from local to river basin level.

    Training Schools

    Training Schools aim to facilitate capacity building on a topic relevant to the theme of the respective COST Action through the delivery of intensive training on a new or emerging subject.  They can also offer familiarisation with unique equipment or expertise and are typically, although not exclusively, considered to be...

    The effects of peatland restoration and on-site forest materials on water quality

    This is one of Forest Research studies on the effects of peatland restoration on water quality and focuses on in-situ forest residues, particularly mulched tree material.

    SCALEFORES: Scaling Rules For Ecosystem Service Mapping

    We are working with Southampton University and the Centre for Ecology and Hydrology to develop and test novel modelling frameworks to explore the drivers of ecosystem services at different spatial scales in order to predict and map their delivery.

    The effects of peatland restoration on water quality

    We are investigating the effects of peatland restoration by deforestation on nutrient and carbon transport to the water environment.
