Design Techniques for Forest Management Planning

Design Techniques for Forest Management Planning

This Practice Guide provides a step-by-step guide to the design techniques used in the forest management planning process.

The guidance applies to the creation of new forests and woodlands, whether by planting or natural regeneration, and the management of existing forests and woodlands. Although some aspects of planning are needed for small woods managed as single units or compartments, generally the guidance set out here focuses on larger forest areas, generally of plantation origin, where there is usually a more complex range of issues to be considered, or a longer time period for management activity to be programmed.
