 What hectares, quantities, sizes and mixes are you thinking? And which 
‘exotics’.  Is there just going to be a sawmill or will there be firewood 
production and coppicing utilised as well? 
My new woodland design experience is on a smaller scale, but I am very 
interested in your projects and plans!

Dear all

I am involved in a large scale farm woodland planting scheme.

The FC favour high performance carbon/timber/eco species, and the ANOB/LA
landscape planners favour traditional species to form traditional landscape
features.

There is considerable overlap potential but the FC seem to be more inline
with modern thinking. And arguably the LA/ANOB are part of the old failed
model.

Also, The landowner intends to eventually run a sawmill on the Eatate.

I am proposing a highly diverse mix of 50/50 exotics & natives as suits the
soil/climate/objectives - with special emphasis on targeting habitat for
priority fauna species.

It is a fun project & I welcome your input.

Thanks

Brynley
