How can managing woodland improve your shoot?

Managed woodland has a diverse understory, which creates better cover and holds more birds in the area.

Unmanaged woodlands have a sparse ground cover and soon become cold and draughty.

This event aims to provide information on how to manage your woodland without disrupting the shoot.

Alan Stephens at Countryside Training Ltd has been involved with shooting and woodland management for

many years. He has first-hand knowledge of managing woodland for the shoot and can demonstrate how he

manages the woodland for both firewood production and shooting.
