Woodland management is a term contrary to what most people believe as they expect the ‘woodland ecosystem’ to take care of itself. The reason for this is human intervention.
There are no wildwoods in Scotland. Centuries of exploitation, the introduction of non-native species and the decimation of wildlife have led us to a situation where woodland management is needed, specifically ‘letting the light in’.
Light allows for greater biodiversity on the forest floor, supporting the growth of new plants and ensuring a healthy ecosystem where nature can thrive.
