In early October I took part in Mark Yorke’s practical workshop entitled "Transforming even-aged plantations into diverse and uneven-aged forests and woods. An alternative to clear-felling."
Two recent grants from Woodland Heritage have helped in the development of teaching and training initiatives at the National School of Forestry.
His Royal Highness The Prince of Wales has agreed to become Patron of Woodland Heritage in what is seen as a “tremendous boost” to their efforts to improve the management of woodlands in the UK.
The perception is still doing the rounds, that transformation to continuous cover is costly and hence people will not contemplate it unless grant aid is forthcoming.
