Woodland Creation for Wildlife and People in a Changing Climate: Principles and Practice
Describes how to create new native woodland for wildlife. This includes not only high forest - the traditional focus of the forester - but also shrubs of the woodland edge, and tall herbs and short turf of rides and open spaces. All provide important habitat for wildlife, but it is the woodland edge and open spaces which contribute most to biodiversity in the early life of a new wood.
Descriptions of case study woodlands illustrate many of the issues raised on woodland design and management practices.
