The purpose of this guide is to describe the potential impacts of whole-tree harvesting (WTH) upon the forest ecosystem, to consider the likely risks on different sites and to make recommendations for managers faced with different harvesting options. The aim is to provide operational guidance to managers. Because our knowledge of this subject is still developing (Proe et al, in prep), these recommendations may need to be revised over the course of time and further advice on specific sites may need to be obtained from the Forestry Commission Research Agency.
