Forests and Peatland Habitats

Forests and Peatland Habitats

This Guideline Note sets out forestry policy and practice in relation to peatland habitats, with particular focus on blanket bogs and lowland raised bogs.

These two types of internationally important peatland habitat are the most extensive, have been most affected by forestry in the past, and are now the subject of UK-wide Habitat Action Plans to conserve and enhance their biodiversity.
