About this book

There has long been a close association between people and woodlands. Most of Britain's woodlands have been managed over the centuries for coppice products, fuel, timber and other products, and their wildlife diversity owes much to this management. In the century just past, many woodlands were neglected, planted with conifers, or cleared for development. There is a great need to re-establish management, particularly in coppice woodlands. This handbook covers the full range of woodland work, from tree planting and establishment, through to thinning and conversion into woodland products. Coppicing is described in detail, along with management of glades, rides and other woodland habitats. Tools and techniques suitable for volunteer use are described, with an emphasis on safe working practices
