An updated Game & Wildlife Conservation Trust guide on how to create and manage a woodland habitat to benefit both game and wildlife.
For a generation of gamekeepers and land managers, the Game Conservancy green guides were a revelation – giving them the guidance they needed to manage the countryside well.
One of the most popular of these was Woodland for Pheasants, first published in 1961 and rewritten by GWCT advisor Ian MacCall in 1988. With tree planting high on the public agenda, the last addition to the GWCT Advisory team, Alex Keeble, has rewritten the guide, refreshing it to reflect changes in best practice and bring the guidelines up to date.
Woodlands for Pheasants and Wildlife also embraces the important role good game management can have for many other species and this is reflected in its new title, Woodland for Pheasants and Wildlife.
