Forests and Historic Environment: Information and Advice
A summary of what forest and woodland managers should consider in relation to the historic environment, providing links to all the sources of information that they should be aware of and how, if required, advice can be obtained from a suitable qualified archaeological professional.
Following the UKFS Forests and Historic Environment guidelines, historic environment features and sites of special cultural significance should be identified and appropriate measures taken to protect them. Where relevant, a professional archaeological walkover survey may be required to inform decisions and provide baseline evidence (particularly in advance of a new woodland creation). Issues raised during this process should be considered and evidenced within a forest management plan.
