When forestry cultures clash

Pip Howard at europeantrees maintains that British Woodland & Forest Design is not suitable for Export. He explains that there are historic and cultural reasons behind forest design in the UK and France, principally based on boundary lines of landowners, and the alteration of this system by expats moving to seek a better lifestyle with land in France is leading to problems. Can they adopt a new system allowing for the best management to guard against forest pests and diseases, or are traditional methods simply too culturally engrained?

About Dave Bonta

I'm the author of several books of poetry, including Ice Mountain: An Elegy, Breakdown: Banjo Poems, and Odes to Tools, but my real work is at my long-running literary blog Via Negativa, where I'm currently creating erasure poems from every entry of the Diary of Samuel Pepys. I'm also the editor and publisher of Moving Poems, a blog showcasing the best poetry videos on the web.
