Home Publications [Archive] Reclaiming disturbed land for forestry

This Bulletin has been written to give up-to-date practical advice to people involved in the reclamation of disturbed land who wish to plant trees on the restored site. The Bulletin provides a comprehensive guide both to mineral companies, in preparing planning applications which involve proposals for forestry, and to mineral planning authorities, in considering such applications. It is also a comprehensive basis on which to plan the reclamation of derelict and other disturbed sites for tree planting. The Bulletin will facilitate the statutory consultations between mineral planning authorities and the Forestry Authority, and help people applying for support under the Forestry Commission Woodland Grant Scheme for tree planting on disturbed land.
