[Archive] Creating new native woodlands

Gordon Patterson

Lead Author: John Rodwell

This Bulletin combines expertise in woodland ecology and up-to-date silvicultural knowledge. It encourages the selection of the appropriate type of new native woodland for any particular site and gives guidance on the species composition, design and silvicultural methods which should be used in order to secure the development of the woodland ecosystem as a whole. The wide range of possible benefits from these new woods, including wood production, is recognised and the practical advice is tailored accordingly. This publication is still available in hardcopy.
