Woodland managementwoodlands, whether for the maximising of timber production, or for the conservation of wildlife.
A well-managed woodland, such as one in which coppicing is practiced, can produce a steady supply of small timber (suitable for fencing, broom handles etc.). With its mixture of open glades, partial and total tree cover, it can also maintain a wide variety of environments for woodland species of birds, insects and flowers.
Other woodland management techniques include pollarding, shredding and snigging.
