This Note outlines the main landscape considerations that need to be taken into account when planning the establishment of SRC, and provides advice to growers on the ways in which an area of coppice can be designed to blend in with the rest of the landscape. The Note has been prepared following a review of practice on the ground, and it expands on the guidance given in the Lowland Landscape Design Guidelines.
