Description
About the book

The call for increasing woodland cover in Britain is growing ever louder, and new woodland can make a real contribution to the conservation of wildlife characteristic of woodland and its associated habitats.
New woodland also benefits people in a variety of ways, which include health and well-being. This book presents a comprehensive and richly-illustrated guide to the principles and practice of woodland creation for wildlife and people in a changing climate. The first part of the book looks at the issues underlying woodland creation and natural succession, and describes different woodland community types as model habitat targets. The variety of wildlife attracted to new woods, including birds, insects and plants, is described. The impact of climate change on woodland into the future is also explored, including coping strategies for biodiversity, and the planning and planting strategies for woodland habitat networks in the landscape.
The second part presents vital practical information, covering essential topics from the planning and selection of sites, selecting tree species and sourcing of seeds to woodland design and management, including the role and design of woodland open space. This book will appeal to all with an interest in woodland creation, including landowners, advisors, national and local conservation organisations, foresters, consultants, planners, local authorities and community groups.
"By using this passionately driven and comprehensive guide to plan the development of canopy layers, shrubs, herbs, clearings, glades and rides, to organise species lists and design landscape strategies you, yes you, can create prosperous and rich communities of life, and frankly – what could be a finer ambition?" Chris Packham
