Forest landscape design training course

This two-day course explains what is meant by 'landscape' and explores the principles of forest landscape design as outlined in the UK Forestry Standard (UKFS) Guidelines 'Forests and Landscape' (PDF).

The course demonstrates how the application of these principles can contribute towards the effective design of both new forests and felling and restocking an existing forest, all in a variety of Scottish landscapes. The course is primarily intended for forest managers and their advisers, but will be useful for anyone who has an interest in forest landscape design.

The PDF documents below are provided for reference for those who have attended the course.
