Today it is possible to create woodlands which not only provide income from timber but which also fit well in to the landscape, and offer an enriched habitat for wildlife and game. To grow trees successfully so that they thrive and are an asset to the farm requires a sound knowledge of the different tree species and of their requirements and their uses. This Handbook gives essential advice on a wide range of species and methods of woodland establishment and management. A companion publication, Farm Woodland Planning (Forestry Commission Bulletin 80), provides details of costs, grants, income and regulations. Together, these give comprehensive guidance on the planting and management of farm woodlands. This Handbook is no longer available in hardcopy.
