Foreword by David Bellamy
The conflict between forestry and nature conservation became a major environmental issue in Britain in the 1980s. The large-scale planting of conifer plantations, especially in the flow country of Scotland, and the resulting disturbance of existing plant and animal communities, led to a heated and acrimonious debate. Written by an ornithologist, and a forester, this book studies which birds are threatened, which species benefit from afforestation, the value placed on these species, and the ways in which forestry can fit in with the needs and demands of conservationists.
Digital reprint of a book originally published in 1990.
