The European Landscape Convention recognises that all landscapes are important, whether officially recognised through formal designations or not. It also highlights the importance of involving the public and other interested parties in the creation and implementation of landscape policies – including the design and management of forests, woodlands and trees. Forests and woodlands are important visual elements in the landscape that change over time. They have great potential to enhance and enrich the environment and make a significant contribution to landscape quality.
The UKFS Guidelines on Forests and landscape and other supporting publications (see Related page links below) set out how to comply with UKFS Requirements and provide more detailed information on good practice.
