About this book

Based on the NCC national survey of ancient woodland, this is part of an important trilogy of books dealing with Britain's ancient woodland. Half of our woodlands have been lost since 1945, and what remains is often in a poor state. This book tackles the questions of how to manage each type of woodland, how to determine its history, and what policies to follow in order to maximise the wood's wildlife value and character. Essential reading for all involved or interested in woodlands.
Other volumes in the triology are: Woodland Heritage and The Wild Wood.
