Implementing continuous cover forestry (CCF) in woodlands with high visitor pressure

Thursday 2 September 2010

What was the event?

This was the Scottish CCFG annual site visit to a forest where CCF principles are to be used to meet management objectives.

The day focused on the role of appropriate silvicultural practices in an urban setting where there are numerous woodland management issues to be tackled, but one in which CCF management is what the public like to see and can offer a manageable, good quality successional crop.

In the morning Beecraigs Country Park was visited, which is predominately conifer species, and in the afternoon, Callendar Woods which are more mixed with long established broadleaved species.

Who was the event suitable for?

Foresters and managers interested in using CCF principles to managed diverse woodlands
