This publication replaces Forestry Commission Bulletin 102: Forest fencing, published 14 years ago. It recommends best practice principles for managers and practitioners as a guide to planning, assessment and mitigation of adverse factors, in choosing the fence design appropriate for the target species and by indicating the key practical steps in construction. It assists in identifying the normal specifications of components required to accommodate typical situations and when taking account of special local circumstances. It assumes that those involved are reasonably familiar with agricultural stock fencing installation, but outlines working with spring steel line wires, hexagonal mesh and high tensile netting products, which together create the recommended generic fencing options against rabbits and deer. Sections on temporary and electric fences are provided, together with tools, safety aspects and maintenance.
