woodland conservation

Woodland conservation is a particular approach to woodland management that focuses on protection, restoration and enhancement. It involves a deep historic knowledge & understanding of regional woodland practices, native trees, flora & fauna, land use, environmental & climate changes & any other relevant factors. This enables an appropriate management response that aims to protect & enhance the existing woodland and restore what might have been lost, all the time maintaining or sometimes creating connections between one piece of land and another in the wider landscape, between woodland & hedgerow, hedgerow & verge, verge & garden, all to enable a robust, healthy, biodiverse, unified landscape.
