Forestry and Woodland Management
CLA Forestry and Woodland Management Policy

A useful page from the Forestry Commission on Sudden Oak Death, with pictures. British oaks appear to have more immunity than those in the US. Nonetheless it would be wise for members to familiarise themselves with the disease if they have oak woodlands.
The Deer Initiative has a set of best practice guidelines on deer management, launched at CLA headquarters in Belgrave Square, central London. The guidelines, which we strongly recommend, can be downloaded from this site, and are also available in hard copy. The CLA is one of the partners in The Deer Initiative.
The Read Report "Combating Climate Change". This looks at how woodlands can help lessen climate change, and suggests a dramatic increase in new planting is needed.
