Achieving Diversity in Scotland's Forest Landscapes
This guidance is aimed at the owners and managers of conifer woodlands over 100 ha in size which have been planted primarily for timber production. It demonstrates ways in which the ‘diversity’ requirements of the revised UK Forest Standard and the accompanying suite of Forest Guidelines can be put into practice.
It aims to:
- Demonstrate how forests can be diversified to increase their resilience to climate change and deliver biodiversity, landscape, operational and other benefits
- Provide practical advice on combining these benefits when planning for and implementing diversity
