Description

Since the War, whole woods have disappeared under the bulldozer and the plough. In their place blanket afforestation has taken place - a shattering intrusion of mass conifer planting. Despite intense public opposition the small but powerful Forestry Lobby exploits the enormous subsidies that the Government continues to pump into upland conifer afforestation. This text argues that the Forestry Commission should be dismantled and replaced by a new-style Forestry Service with a genuine duty to protect and enhance Britain's trees and woodlands. The book also shows how to challenge the powerful forestry lobby which includes the Forestry Commission.
