As Jim says, the local Forestry Commission Officers are human. They're also
very reasonable and helpful. I would discuss with them what they would like
to see by way of replacement trees and where they want them. Put the FC's
views to your client and see what they say. If your client wants to go down
the route of other species and different locations, come up with some good
reasons why it should be the way your client wants it, and put that to the
FC to support their choice. Maybe think about natural regeneration as part
of the mix, could you achieve re-stocking by natural regeneration alone,
would that satisfiy your client or the FC. It would be a bit cheaper.

Dear collective,

I've been asked to help someone who's felled 46 Oaks (ranging from sapling
to early mature) in a woodland.
Rather than prosecute, the Forestry Commission are going to issue a
re-stocking notice.
I've never dealt with one of these before and have a few questions:

Is there a formula for calculating how many trees need to be re-planted,
or is it usually on a tree-for-tree basis?
What size replacement trees usually need to be planted?

Do they need to go in the same place, or can they be scattered around the
woodland?
Do the replacement tree species have to be the same as felled, or can
other natives be planted?

Any help greatly appreciated,

Cheers

Trevor
