Managing Woodlands

Managing Small Woodlands in the Highlands and Islands

A guide for crofters, communities and small woodland owners

A guide to managing small woodlands has been produced with support from Forestry Commission Scotland, Scottish Natural Heritage, Comhairle nan Eilean Siar, Highland Council, The Scottish Crofting Federation and Highland Birchwoods.

This guide is presented in a number of sections covering the creation of new woodland, managing small woods, ways of realising the value, and also providing information on learning and support related to woodland management.

The shared experiences cover a range of situations and illustrate how various people have approached the management of small woods.
