This FCS publication is the first comprehensive and detailed guidance to be published on the management of designed landscapes in Scotland. It has been welcomed and used, among others, by Historic Scotland and FC officers in England.

While the guidance was intended primarily for land managers and their advisers, to help develop their management proposals for the trees, tree features and woodlands in designed landscapes, it will also be useful for all those who regulate, licence and provide grant aid for forest management activities, and for those with a general interest in Scotland’s designed landscapes. This practice guide is thoughtfully and sensitively written and addresses important considerations for landscape architecture. The contextual descriptions and references could be extended to urban environments and other regions.
