High forest management

  • G. F. Peterken


‘High forest’ is not synonymous with ‘plantation’, although many observers of modern British forestry probably think that it is. Planting, like sowing and natural regeneration, is a method of establishing a stand. ‘High forest’ describes stands grown mainly from seedlings rather than coppice shoots. In Britain, high forest and plantations are strongly correlated, for most high-forest stands are plantations, whereas an unknown but high proportion of coppices are of natural origin.
