Forest landscape design

In this section we look at forest landscape design, which is an integral part of planning a new forest or re-designing an existing forest.

The planning process

During the planning process, we must consider carefully the impact a forest will have ecologically and visually for the next forty, eighty or even several hundred years. Once the forest is growing, it is virtually impossible to remedy any negative impacts to the landscape until felling commences many years later, giving rise to new redesign opportunities.

For this reason we put a lot of time and effort into picturing what certain species and shapes of plantations will look like in years to come and after consultation with others we plan the landscapes of the future.
