This handbook is a comprehensive guide to establishing native trees. In recent decades, many thousands of trees planted in amenity sites have failed due to poor choice of species and lack of aftercare. "Tree Planting and Aftercare" gives clear practical advice on choosing, planting and caring for young trees to ensure the success of planting schemes, from individual trees to new native woodlands. Detailed information is included on propagating trees from locally-collected seeds and cuttings, to produce planting stock of 'local provenance' which has special value in maintaining local variations in species. Information is included on establishing woodland ground flora and encouraging natural regeneration of trees.
