Cover of Wood Wise Autumn 2012 - conservation grazing

These case studies look at why conservation grazing is important and the various impacts different grazers have.

For millennia the structure of woods has been influenced by grazers. However, in modern times some woods have become overgrown through lack of grazing; negatively impacting on wildflowers and butterflies.

The projects featured show how grazing can play an important role in woodland management.
