This series aims to help individuals and groups of volunteers undertake practical conservation work. Each one is illustrated and clearly laid out in a step-by-step format.
Tree Planting and Aftercare gives clear practical advice on choosing, planting and caring for young trees to ensure the success of planting schemes, from individual trees to new native woodlands. Detailed information is included on propagating trees from locally-collected seeds and cuttings, to produce planting stock of ‘local provenance’ which has special value in maintaining local variations in species. Information is included on establishing woodland ground flora and encouraging natural regeneration of trees.
