WHY MANAGE WOODLANDS?

 

 

Mans involvement with woodland dates back to our origins, Since Neolithic times man has used woodlands as an essential resource to provide shelter, building materials, food, fuel and medicines.

Many woodlands have now become neglected since the industrial revolution when bricks replaced wood as a building material and coal replaced firewood and charcoal as a fuel.

An example of lack of management - A beech tree that will never make good timber due damage caused by vermin in a neglected woodland

 

 

 

 

The lack of active management has many consequences upon our woodlands such as:

  • Over crowded , spindly, towering trees with poor timber quality and prone to wind throw
  • Poor habitat diversity, lack of tree regeneration
  • Poor light penetration to woodland floor so lack of ground flora and fauna
  • Increased tree daage through vermin and overgrazing
  • Invasion of undesirable vegetation such as Laurel and Rhododendron
  • Excessive damage to tracks through unauthorised vehicles
  • Lack of ride and path maintenance with overgrown vegetation restricting access
