Sharing knowledge

RyvoanIn recent years, we have started to build up a picture of Aspen's importance for biodiversity, and new discoveries are being made every year.   However, few woodland managers have experience managing Aspen woodland, and few local-origin Aspen are planted.

The Project is helping to raise awareness of Aspen. It is gathering and disseminating information on Aspen, its dependent species and providing management guidance.  It holds events to raise awareness of Aspen and demonstrate  management methods.




It is also supporting and facilitating research and field trials to increase our understanding of Aspen ecology and management. These include the requirements of Aspen-dependent species, the impact of grazing and nursery propagation.
