    Therefore, over time, the classification of a forest may change from one FMA to another, for example, if Norway spruce forests managed under FMA 4 are converted to close-to-nature forestry due to ecological considerations (e.g., Kulhavý et al. ). Hi Natalie – thanks for your comment. You may want to check your own sources before being so openly critical. The ancient woodland of Epping Forest covers 2,ha or 24km2 ( sq miles) making it very much smaller than any of those listed in my top ten largest UK forests.

    Background: Ecological sites are the basic component of a land-type classification system that describes ecological potential and ecosystem dynamics of land land/land use types are identified within the ecological site system, including rangeland, pasture, and forest land. An ecological site is defined as a distinctive kind of land with specific soil and physical characteristics that. ESC is a PC-based DSS that supports a methodology for the evaluation of the suitability of different tree species and woodland communities as defined in the National Vegetation Classification (NVC) for Great Britain, and also predicting yield in the form of a site index, on the UK forest land. This tool encourages the decision makers on the election of a suitable forest species according to their site soil properties .

    Collecting soil data. Forest owners and managers need to gather soils data to comply with the UK Forestry Standard (UKFS).Data on soils is also needed to apply for consent or grant support from Scottish Forestry (SF).. For an initial assessment of the soil on a site, you can find useful background information from the maps available on this web site. Get this from a library!

Forestry Commission.]. The United Kingdom, being in the British Isles, is ideal for tree growth, thanks to its mild winters, plentiful rainfall, fertile soil and hill-sheltered rates for broadleaved (hardwood) trees exceed those of mainland Europe, while conifer (softwood) growth rates are three times those of Sweden and five times those of the absence of people, much of Great Britain.

Abstract. This paper describes Britain’s approach to the conservation of forest biodiversity and aims to show how the Forestry Commission is evolving systems of sustainable forest management and biodiversity evaluation suited to Britain’s substantial plantation forest resource.

Ecological Site Classification (ESC) To support foresters’ decisions, Forest Research developed ESC in the s. ESC is delivered as a computer-based tool for appraising tree species’ potential by soil, accumulated temperature and other climatic variables.

This tool is now widely used in forest planning at multiple spatial scales, ranging from.University and Forestry School training put a strong emphasis on this and most Foresters had at least basic skills in site recognition. ’s ’s ’s ’s ’s ’s ’s ’s ’s Multi-purpose forestry Sustainable forestry Virtual forestry ’s Ecosystem Services Selecting species and .It features ecological site classification, ecosystem modeling, and strong sections on ecological diversity and the physical environment.
