An approach to a woodland monitoring framework (ENRR098)

We cannot say whether woodland conservation is successful or not unless we have a series of targets (what we want to achieve) and a monitoring systern (are those targets being met?). The targets must be expressed at a series of levels, namely what we want for the wider countryside, for ancient woods, for woodland SSSIs generally, and for individual sites. Theetargets should also be related to a timescale. The monitoring system must identify the methods to be used for different circumstances and objectives, the frequency of recording and the action to be taken if targets are not being met.
