Temperate Deciduous Woodland - Case Study
  1. Case Study - New Forest
    1. Location
      1. The location of the New Forest is as follows. It is in the Mid-South of the UK. In relation to Southampton it is South West of it and around 5.5 miles. It is in the county of Hampshire
      2. Human uses
        1. Resources
          1. Timber and Timber Products
            1. The New Forest produces approximately 50,000 tonnes of timber per annum, equivalent to over 2,000 lorry loads each year.
              1. The timber comes from areas that are either thinned to promote the growth of the remaining trees or from areas cleared for replanting or restoration to other habitats, such as heathland.
                1. All the timber is certificated, holding the Forest Stewardship Council® (FSC®) mark, giving the customer assurance that the wood has come from sustainable managed forests.
                  1. The forest remains very much a working landscape and all the receipts from timber sales go back into the area helping to cover the costs of tree establishment, conservation and recreation work.
