Hope he has a better planting season than us. Planted about 1750 trees last 
winter 99% dead; waterlogging, warm spring 2 frosts at the end of May 
followed by drought.

Ours was very diverse, I think it's hard to think about "natives" nowadays in 
the UK. So many species are naturalised or will become so in the next few 
decades, and climate change will have a very real impact on species that 
thrive here.

From a working with timber point of view I do love home grown walnut and elm.

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
