Two years ago Forest Policy Group (FPG) published a blog on forestry cultivation called “Back to the 70’s -Flared Trousers and Forestry Ploughing”, proposing a rethink on cultivation practice.
Since then, FPG has been busy researching the effects of forestry operations on soil carbon, and what might constitute best practice in an era when the climate emergency is centre stage.
It's great to see that their research and recommendations have been taken on board in Scottish Forestry's latest guidance on cultivation. Find out more about the impacts of forestry on carbon storage in soils and what FPG thinks of the new guidance in their latest blog post.
The Pebble Trust is delighted to be funding this work.
