    Forest mensuration: a handbook for practitioners

    Lead Author: Forestry Commission
    Forest Mensuration is an essential, practice-based handbook designed to help all those working in the timber trade and forestry understand how to measure trees and timber. Written for practitioners, researchers and students, this new edition aims to cut through some of the complexities of forest mensuration by providing a logical format and additional advice to […]

    Detecting young trees from space

    FR have established how to detect young trees from space using synthetic aperture RADAR and machine learning techniques. This will support the monitoring of the planting of tens of thousands of restock sites and new woodland across Britain. In searching for a solution researchers hypothesised that even if the trees are too small to see, maybe we could ‘feel’ them using Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR). A different technique to utilising optical data, SAR provides ‘fuzzy’ data on the presence of objects, their size, orientation and texture. The research found that this was possible and data on whether sites had tree cover or not has been derived for extensive areas of Britain and NFI are working to operationalise the process.

    BioCoRe: An interactive/adaptable landscape ecology approach for targeting restoration

    How we manage priority habitats within increasingly fragmented landscapes is a critical conservation issue.   Practitioners and policy makers are often faced with the dilemma of deciding where to focus limited resources, but evidence on where particular actions will have the largest return on investment is lacking.  To aid this decision...
