Managing English woodlands could help rare plants, report finds
Plantlife argues that managing neglected English woodlands to produce wood fuel could boost declining species of flowers
A report from Plantlife has revealed that one in six woodland flower species is threatened with extinction, with plants hit by the "perfect storm" of under-managed woods, increasing deer populations and too many nutrients in the environment.
But sustainable woodland management to provide wood fuel could generate a low-carbon energy source that people could buy to support their local countryside, in the same way as buying local farm produce, and improve woods for wildlife.
