Improving site access for woodland management, 2015 case study

This case study details how access improvements have made sustainable woodland management easier at Fingle Woods in Devon.

Improvements to multiple entrances on-site have improved access for timber harvesting and the public – while also benefitting the restoration efforts at Fingle.
