  2. 2. CONTINUOUS COVER FORESTRY Science-Policy-Practice “[Continuous Cover Forestry is]...the use of silvicultural systems whereby the forest canopy is maintained at one or more levels without clear felling.” Mason et al. 1999 “Whereas clearfell systems have predominated in the past, in future continuous cover forestry approaches may become more advantageous ...” Read et al. 2009 “We will adopt the principle of anticipatory adaptation. This offers the highest potential gains for forest resilience, and the benefits they provide.” Weir 2011 “Consider alternatives to clearfell systems, such as continuous cover forestry, where suitable sites and species combinations allow and management objectives are compatible.” UK Forestry Standard 2011
  3. 3. Successional stages in a natural forest initial stage intermediate stage open ground Late stage STRATEGIES FOR ENHANCING RESILIENCE Modify thinning regimes Extend “rotations” Diversify Stand Structure (Continuous Cover Forestry) Species choice - genetics/provenance Mixed species Assisted migration of native species New species introduced Wider use of “minor” species Graphic: Jens Haufe
