[Archive] The landscape of forests and woods

Lead Author: Sylvia Crowe

Home Publications [Archive] The landscape of forests and woods

This booklet is an extensive revision of Booklet 18 Forestry in the landscape published in 1966. The author has unique experience of landscaping British forests over many years, and her opinions on landscape design principles, which should be applied in forestry to obtain a satisfactory balance between beauty and function in the landscape, are admirably outlined in this Booklet. The authors principles have been adopted as the Forestry Commission's policy on landscape design and will be implemented by its staff. This Booklet will be of interest to the general public who may gain a fuller understanding of the landscape design objectives of the Forestry Commission, to woodland owners whose aim of caring for the countryside is similar to our own, and to countries abroad with similar landscape problems.
