Guidance for land managers on managing blanket bog
This guidance for land managers and conservation advisers was collaboratively produced in 2017 by representatives of the Uplands Management Group (UMG) in response to a request from Defra's Uplands Stakeholder Forum (USF) for best practice guidance. It is designed to put into practice the joint voluntary Defra Blanket Bog Restoration Strategy agreed by the USF.
The guidance consists of three elements:
Decision making toolkit
Outcomes and Improvements booklet
Frequently asked questions
Before you print
To print the Outcomes and Improvements booklet we recommend that you set the paper size and the original size to A3 and print one-sided.
