The Farm Woodland Scheme encourages farmers to grow trees on surplus agricultural land. The efficient production of timber is obviously profitable, yet does not preclude other important objectives such as landscape design, amenity considerations, game management and wildlife conservation. If investment in woodlands is to be realized, the production of high quality timber is paramount. This bulletin describes the characteristics and uses of 15 hardwood and 8 softwood timbers of trees suitable for farm woodland planting.
