Trees for Transition - Working woodlands for a sustainable future

Woodland Management

High WoodWoodland Management Planning is like living sculpture in 4 dimensions; you are working with the spatial extent of the trees on the land, their proximity to each other, the various vertical layers of the forest plus the crucial factor of time. Foresters routinely work to 50 or 100 year timescales in the practice of sustainable resource management.

A management plan is an essential tool for looking after your woods.
In essence it is very simple and collates the following information:

  • Where are you now?
  • Where do you want to be?
  • How are you going to get there?
  • How will you know when you arrive?

These steps roughly correspond to making an inventory, setting objectives, deciding operational management, and monitoring.

The Forestry Commission funds management plans and a suite of foresty activities through the English Woodland Grant Scheme.
