[biofuelwatch] "Sustainable" biomass could help rare UK plants - report





Managing English woodlands could help rare plants, report finds

Plantlife argues that managing neglected English woodlands to produce wood fuel could boost declining species of flowers



Managing neglected English woodlands to produce wood fuel could boost declining species of flowers, conservationists have said.
A report from Plantlife has revealed that one in six woodland flower species is threatened with extinction, with plants hit by the "perfect storm" of under-managed woods, increasing deer populations and too many nutrients in the environment.
But sustainable woodland management to provide wood fuel could generate a low-carbon energy source that people could buy to support their local countryside, in the same way as buying local farm produce, and improve woods for wildlife.
