Bracken management: ecological, archaeological and landscape issues and priorities (TIN047)

Please note: This guidance was written in 2008 and may contain information that is now out of date. Updated guidance will be published when available.

For over sixty years research has been carried out on the control of bracken. Much has been aimed at methods of control where it has invaded plant communities of higher conservation value. More recent research has focussed on the damage it may do to archaeology. Conflicts between different environmental interests can arise where bracken is present. This note identifies some of the issues and suggests priorities in a number of conflict situations.
