Promote biodiversity in your woodland with this comprehensive guide. Find detailed information on how best to manage each type of woodland to benefit the species that live there, and that could live there.
You will find that the woodland habitat types are all aligned to the habitat structures in the Native Woodlands Survey of Scotland as major project being carried out by Forestry Commission Scotland.
This woodland advice has been prepared by Forest Research for the Woodland Ecosystem Group of the Scottish Biodiversity Forum. The work was funded and managed by Scottish Natural Heritage with assistance from Forestry Commission Scotland who jointly steered the project.
