Forest Design Planning

Forest Design Planning

This Forestry Practice Guide supports the UK Forestry Standard, the various guidelines and other advisory material produced by Scottish Forestry.

Its purpose is to help owners and managers of plantations, forests and woods that are approaching the felling stage to take advantage of the opportunities this presents to make any necessary improvement to the diversity and appearance of the area in balance with other, more functional or economic objectives. It is a straightforward, step-by-step guide as to how to go about this task, referred to here as forest design planning, within the wider framework of environmental and operational planning.
