Abstract

This paper examines the trade-offs between woodland management for timber and public good outputs in English woodlands. Recent evidence suggests that some public good values may be declining as a result of a lack of woodland management. Such un(der)management has been attributed to the decline in timber values and a reduction in the productivity of woodlands and forests for timber products and the resultant lack of active management. This paper asserts that assessing the management needs of woodlands in order to enhance public good outputs presents a complex challenge and often depends on a variety of factors, such as location, type of woodland, age, condition, substitutability and ownership motivation. However, in most instances a moderate level of management (whether for timber or otherwise) is likely to be beneficial for public good outputs.
