What is Continuous Cover Forestry?

Managing a forest ecosystem rather than periodically creating and removing whole crops of trees.

Producing structurally diverse stands with a range of size-classes present at sub-compartment level capable of sustainable timber production.

What are the advantages?

Timber Production

  • Giving top priority to maximising the volume and value of the best individuals in the stand.
  • Increasing the overall proportion of larger diameter trees and the average volume of the harvested tree.
  • Reducing costs by making use of natural regeneration and using light as the key factor in controlling weed competition.
  • Reducing the risk of major disturbances to projected cash flows.

Nature Conservation

  • Introducing natural processes into high forest management.
  • Creating stable, more diverse woodland ecosystems.
  • Making the incorporation of 'Old Growth' features easier.

Landscape Conservation

  • Avoiding major disruptions to external landscapes.
  • Creating attractive internal landscapes.
