Describes a site classification that provides a sound ecological basis for the sustainable management of forests and resulting timber production, wildlife conservation and other benefits. Applicable to all kinds of woodlands, it incorporates the existing classification of soil types used for many years when selecting silvicultural options. Much of this publication is specific to Grampian Region (see Research Information Note 260 for a general outline of the classification). A publication on the subject, that will be applicable country-wide, is in preparation. This publication is still available in hardcopy.
